santa clause

can we just talk about this for a second? stella didn't like santa - i mean duh, she is almost two i should have known. except rowan never had a problem with him and stella is equally if not more easy going so i never even gave it a second thought. the second she started pouting i told the photographer to snap it - if she was gonna be upset then i am more than happy to document it, i mean this is what this age is all about right?
(plus, after what we went through at this age with zoe - i wasn't up for the challenge, the bubbles, the puppets, or trying to trick my kid - so tears it is.)

we braved the mall with tim, my sister, and our five kids between us to get our yearly photo with santa. last year was the first year in existence that me and my sister didn't get one but we are happy to carry on the tradition with our kids - nordstroms is where we have almost always gone and i am always happy with the result, even though i am a little bummed their one real beard santa was not there saturday. the photo i have of zoe with him is the best of all that i have so far.
the kids all did really great, minus stella's perfect pouting face ha! i can't wait to see the actual photo - i only hope rowan is making a little less of a poo face.
ok, is anyone else in total denial that christmas is in twelve days?

Oh my son is scared shitless of Santa. He'll talk to him and give him a HIGH FIVE but as far as sitting anywhere near the fat man himself, it's a no go. :P

I can't believe you got all five kids to stand up there and look in the same general direction! They all did so good! Usually Stella is so chill, I can't believe she got upset! Hehe!

um, twelve days?  great.  maybe i'll just say that santa's elves are on strike and they can't get to our house until we get BACK from the PNW. totally legitimate, right?

oh, and i absolutely LOVE the girls Santa picture.  stella's sad face makes it even more awesome than it already was.

They all did so good...even Stella! Nico wouldn't even sit on Santa's lap, despite acting cool as a cucumber about it the HOUR we waited in line. Fun times.
