Visit to Santa

Grace seemed to be pretty excited this year to have her picture taken with Santa. We have been talking him up for a couple days now so we were hoping that Grace would be willing to sit on his lap for a picture. She was pretty good while waiting in line, she kept peeking around the corner at him until it was finally our turn. That is when the she turned into velcro-baby. She wanted nothing to do with Santa. Luckily there were no tears but she was not sitting for a picture. So we tried with Mommy sitting next to Santa with Grace sitting on her lap. Still that was too close for our Grace. Our good Santa, the professional that he is, would not be denied. He slyly got up and walked a few steps away to admire the stockings on the mantle and jumped into the frame at the last second for the picture below.

What a clever Santa!
We couldn't even get Lucy on the same floor of the mall as him, she stayed upstairs with grandma while we did Vivi's picture! I am hjoping it isn't b/c I forced her to do it the first yr she was home from China. UGH!

Haaa haaaa haaa! That's hilarious! He sure earned his cookies with this one, didn't he?! :)

I have to ask, where did you get that dress for Grace? It's gorgeous and I'd love to check it out for a few toddlers I know in the extended Gang :)
