Visit with Santa

There has been SO much going on and our lives are completely busy, but I thought I would post this for tonight. We took Tatum to see Santa on Dec 1st. I like to go early so we don't have to stand in line for an hour. We stood in line for like 10 minutes and that was perfect because Tatum had a chance to check everything out from a distance. So on to the picture....

Here is her picture from last year. She was a only a month old...

And here is her picture from this year...
She absolutely LOVED Santa!! She looked at him and smiled at him and talked to him. She ended up in his lap for a long time because 1) there was no one in line behind us and 2) the computer hooked up to the camera shut down and had to be restarted. I was anticipating her screaming and trying to get away fast, but nope, she did GREAT! The only problem we had was that she didn't want to smile at the camera, she wanted to smile at Santa. I guess she knows he is the one that "matters" when it comes to presents? Antonio and I finally had to get to the side and act a fool to get her attention and that is how we got the picture above. Yes, what some parents will do for a good picture....lol.
The thing I was most excited about is this is the same Santa as last year! He has been at my mall at least 3 years I know for sure. You think he will stay in town until Tatum gets older!?!?! I sure hope so.
I will be updating with LOTS of blogs tomorrow and the next coming days because I am taking off work some.

I am so jealous of how good Tatum is on Santa's lap! I love her pigtails!
I have been meaning to call u to tell u that I STILL haven't recieved the gift for Tatum's bday in the mail from the place I ordered it from. I think I might be getting ripped off and need to get it figured out but don't think I have forgotten about her!

How cute! I can't say for sure, but I'm guessing that Jax will be a crier for Santa!

Oh my gosh how they grow so much in just a year. I am so glad that she did so well for Santa. I know that Mackenzie wouldn't do that if we bribed her. (Not sure if I spelled that right)
