santa went exactly how we expected this year. everyone was happy and all smiles while we stood in line. and then the moment came. is that not hilarious? yeah, we think so too!
cayden adored santa this year. even walked up to him and said, "i like you santa." and santa being the great guy that he is, responded with a hearty, "i like you, too." cayden climbed right up beside him on the bench and continued to talk to santa. jeremy carefully tried to back sawyer into santa's lap... but i think we can all see how that went. so while sawyer was screaming, cayden was smiling and talking. the photo? epic for sure. and sawyer closely resembles a one and a half year old cayden a couple of years ago. it was perfect. and even after we got sawyer off santa's lap, cayden continued to chat with santa... telling him about the 'vengers, 'vengers bicycle & 'vengers skateboard that he wants. too bad his interest in the avengers didn't come last year. you know, when everyone had avengers everything. santa's going to be getting creative this year for sure.
after santa, we hopped on over to the carousel - complete with reindeer! sawyer was very uninterested in the carousel at first. like busting eardrums-type of uninterested. but after it started going, he calmed down and enjoyed the ride. cayden was mesmerized and loved it. and jeremy? well, i think you can hear how he felt about it. it was a wonderful morning that was mostly enjoyed by the kiddos. and i can't wait to add this years photo to the previous ones!
