I have been wanting to take Nate to get his picture with santa for a couple weeks now and today I finally had the time. I was a little nervous because he is teething right now and when he teeths he tends to be a little clingy. He did great though! My Mom, Amanda, Alena and Ty all came with me so while I sat Nate on Santas lap I had everybody call his name to get his attention. The picture taker was taking forever! He had to sit on Santas lap for like 5 minutes before she actually took the picture! This year the mall let us take pictures with our personal cameras too so we took a couple. He is smiling in the a picture the mall took so that was exciting! I wish I had a scanner so I could show you that one, but I have some of him smiling to so I will just post those. I dont think Nate even realized he was sitting on Santas lap because he was distracted by us and all the decorations around him. He kept looking at the toy bag and wanting the big white bear poking out. When he looked up at Santa and realized who was holding him he looked back at me with a look on his face that was priceless! I wish we would have got it on camera! He started to cry a little and then I went and got him.
I have to say I was a little disappointed with that Santa in the mall. He looked the part, but definitely didnt act it! He was not personable at all! I didnt care as much with nate because he is to young to understand, but he didnt even talk to the toddlers or yound children! Normally the Santas are really friendly because that is how Santa is, but this guy didnt even say Merry Christmas!! The picture taker was really nice, but the mall definitely needs to find a new santa!!
