We walked in and Gavin ran right to Santa. He LOVED him. He crawled right up in his lap and didn't have one meltdown. I watched that but was still very tentative around the big guy in red. I clung to my daddy and immediately started whimpering. We got even closer and the meltdown began.
So, they decided to sit down and eat and let me watch other children talk to Santa. Gavin kept running right over to Santa and talking to him. Not me...I stayed in my daddy's lap where I knew it was safe.
After a while, my mom went all the way to the wall and sat in a chair and watched Santa. She called me over and I ran to her and sat in her lap. The next think I know, we are sitting on the floor up against the chairs.
He was very nice and gave me a candy cane. So, I walked away then went back and gave him my cup of juice. Nice, huh?
He was nice enough to give it back to me. He is a jolly old soul. I think if he didn't have that big ole beard that I might actually like him.
While we were there, my friend Olivia came to see Santa. She liked Santa about as much as I did the first time. You can click here to read about that.
Santa was being very nice to me so I decided to show him my coloring book. He wanted me to come closer to show it to him but I stayed a nice distance just in case he tried to put me on his lap like the last time I saw Santa.
Gavin ran up to Santa to get another candy cane so I decided it was okay to get closer.
As you can see, I got a candy cane from Santa and was feeling pretty good about the day. Then, out of nowhere, my mom picks me up and puts me in his lap. This is how my day with Santa ended!!! Mommy says if we could see under that beard then we would probably see Santa making the same face as me! :-)
And then, he was going to take it back.
But, Aunt Darla made him give it back and I am now the proud owner of my very own Santa hat!
Then, Gavin & I played with Max. We both gave him hugs and kisses. I don't think he was all that impressed with either of us.
My parents seem to think that eating is good for me and they force me to do it even when I would rather do other things. I am SOOO telling Santa on them because they are not being very good to me.
It finally showed up at the door on Wednesday. I put it on the coffee table so Jonah could reach it and play with it. After church, Dan sat on the floor and told Jonah all about the significance of the Nativity story and about baby Jesus' birth.

Even though he was dressed for the beach pictures, I think these came out great. My little baby boy DOES NOT look like a baby, does he? He looks so grown up.

Kassi was over Friday night and she had to hold me down while mommy held the mask on my face. (She was less than thrilled about this!)
Have you ever seen a more pitiful face than this??? I thought if I looked really sad then my mom might forgo the next treatment. WRONG!
After all was said and done, she let me play with the mask in hopes of me thinking the mask is my friend. NOT HAPPENING!
The next morning, we tried the treatments again with a little more success. I barely even screamed and they didn't both have to hold me down. Daddy did it on his own.
