The Man Everyone is Talking About

With a huge smile bursting from her face she danced while we waited in line to see the man everyone had been talking about.

The round, happy man who looked a lot like her papa and waved at all of the children.

The same man she had been to see last year but has no memory of.

This year she was bigger, and sat comfortably in his lap.

He complimented her on her beautiful red dress and how much she had grown.

The perfect visit.

The perfect photo.

Last year we held an 8 month old while she looked around at the sea of people.

This year we walked around talking about Santa, his adventures, and how jolly he really is.

    Wow, what a brave big girl you have! My two kids are terrified of him and won’t go within two feet of him.

    I love the picture of you on his lap . . . and the shirt you are wearing! Hot stuff lady. ๐Ÿ™‚

    She’s actually happy meeting Santa at her age? That’s pretty darn cool. And you on Santa’s lap too is just too cute. Who’s the other chick? Did he leave Mrs. Claus for her?

    The one and only time I saw the Santa that was really handsome [and not skeevy looking] I totally volunteered to sit on his lap too. You know, for the children.
    We don’t visit Santa til Christmas Eve!

    She really likes it, doesn’t she? What a beautiful photo. My tot wouldn’t go close, never. But I can see that you like it too. Hmmm, so have not been doing naughty this year? Really?

    To be safe, never show her these Santa photos side by side until she’s old enough to know he isn’t real.

    Those are pretty good Santas, though!

    Perfect – she looks like a happy kid on Santa’s lap! This will be one of the only years we don’t visit Santa, I think. My girls don’t believe anymore, and my baby’s too little for it to be necessary. But maybe we’ll still go for fun ๐Ÿ™‚

    So cute! Do your Santa people let you take photos? Ours only do if we buy their photo package too. Total heist.

    Awww, that was the perfect Christmas picture, Leighann!! Look at your little girl’s smile! She’s positively beaming!!!

    And Santa did look really happy with you sitting on his lap too!! LOL.

    PS: you did ask him for a RPattz look-a-like for me, right? Right?? ๐Ÿ˜‰

      GAWWWDDD I hate that picture of me.
      I asked him for the RPatzz and he said he would bring him by for you.
      Watch for a bazillion screaming tweens.

    That Santa is awesome. Rosy cheeks and all. Hopefully it was from Christmas joy and not the flask in his suit.

    I love that lil’ bit is sitting happily in his lap!

      He is wonderful!
      He was the santa last year too but did not use the make-up.
      Love him.
