It didn't go over so well.
But it sure is one of those pictures to remember! Doesn't every child need a picture of themselves freaking out on Santa's knee?
After we wiped away the tears and calmed our poor child down (her brother got super shy around the Big Man, too - although he was really excited about the candy cane Santa gave him)...we just enjoyed the festivities. The music and the lights were a marvelous way to get the magic of the season ignited in all of us.
Stay tuned later this week for a wonderful list of advent ideas -- outings, activities, and crafts to enjoy with your family on the countdown to Christmas...
