We have done a bit of practicing this week.
And a LOT of talking about it.
We may have coached Beanie on what to say and do.
And we indeed used candy and digger bribery techniques in hopes of decreasing the drama at the actual event.
Christmas wouldn't be cancelled if a great Santa photo wasn't taken.
Some family members think it wouldn't be cancelled but this Mumma loves big Santa smiles.
And I happen to know Papa, Grama & Nama are big fans of the traditional photos we give them.
I just had a feeling this would be the year for Santa freak outs.
Seeherefor a not so successful Santa attempt at Daddy's corporate party a few weeks back...
All in all a huge success.
Little man listens and remembers and followed the practiced script to a tee!
Dude made his Mumma & Dad proud x 100! (This is the 3rd year in a row sitting on this exact Santa's lap.)
The warm up small talk...
Keeping Tankie close...
Saying CHEEZE to the other camera...
Baby boy is getting so big!
We celebrated with a round of diggers!
