seeing santa

Monday, December 14, 2015

On Saturday we went to see Santa.

He was very serious on the car ride and clutching his letter to Santa:


Our elf, Pete left a note to take something nice to Santa.  Right before we left Carter colored him a picture and dictated a note that went something like this:

Dear Santa,
I hope you like your picture.  I have been kind like Pete says.
Merry Christmas!
Love, Carter

You can tell he's a little apprehensive about seeing the big guy!  But for weeks we talked about what he would ask for.

When we got there he was so excited.  My parents met us in the parking garage and Carter was amped!  Until we got close.  Then he hid and cozied up to Christian's leg saying "hold me."

We talked him into holding my hand as we walked up to Santa.  And he would not get any closer.

He talked very quietly and answered his questions shyly. He said he wants a teddy bear and that's it!


Then Reid sat his lap.  But Carter wouldn't budge.
And we tried for a good pic...
 There's always next year...


And a little walk down memory lane:
2014



and  2013

at least he's consistent!
