Every year on my Grandma's Birthday(December 23rd) Santa comes to pay the kids a visit. Tim and I are always interested to see how Addison is going to react to Santa. When we were at our Ward Christmas Party earlier this month, we tried to take Addison up to see Santa. When we were in line Addison changed her mind and kept telling us, "No Santa!" So after that, knowing that Santa would be at my Grandma's Birthday party, we tried to work with her so she wouldn't be scared of Santa. Every time we saw Santa on TV or anywhere else, we would point out Santa and tried to get her excited about seeing him. We got to the point where she would say, "Addie Santa" Which we thought meant she wanted to see Santa. So that night when we saw Santa, she seemed to be doing ok. She didn't seemed frightened by him when he came in, and she saw a few other people go up and get their present from him, so we thought she would do alright. But as you'll see, that all changed as soon as Santa called her name and we tried to get her to sit with him! The funny thing is that Addison seemed to enjoy seeing Drew and everyone else sit on Santa's lap, and she even waved bye to him as he was leaving.
Here are the photos:
and finally this years picture
Here is Drew's first Picture with Santa. She of course didn't mind Santa at all. It will be interesting to see how she does next year.
