Yesterday we took Maddox and Cruz to visit with Santa at the Pinnacle Hills Promenade. I knew Maddox would either love him or hate him. At first he walked up to him...slowly...but on his own. Of course, Santa was waving a sucker at him to get him to come over. Maddox got in his lap, and then when I walked away to get Baby Cruz, Maddox lost it....and never really got over it!

What made it even worse, the camera the mall had was not working. So we took pics with our camera and then had to go BACK about 20 minutes later and see Santa again to get the other pictures. It was so funny, though. Why is it so fun to torture your kids?

David got it all on video, which I can't wait to watch! Before we left home for the mall I got the video camera out and asked Maddox, "Are you going to be scared of Santa?". His immediate response was a big smile and a "YES!". Not sure if actually knew what I asked, but funny none the less!

These make me laugh. I don't think I have ever seen Maddox cry before. Our Santa visit was AWFUL--maybe next year.

I know I shouldn't, but I got a good laugh out of this post! What makes it so funny is a childhood friend of mine just posted the most hilarious pictures on facebook. It's his family's Christmas cards. It's three pictures from the last three years, all three of which have both of his children bawling sitting on Santa's lap - EVERY year! I think it's the absolute funniest Christmas card I've ever seen!

These pics are really day Maddox will not think it's so cute, though. However, I think every family endures this "unhappy"
time with Santa at some point. Hope you are doing well! Lookin forward to seeing you after the holidays at JL!

So precious. Maddox looks so little, even next to his tiny baby brother. Their outfits are the sweetest. I think my favorite Santa pic of all four years is the one where Ana is screaming for her life. It's just so cute!
