Hangin' with Santa

Oh the Joy of sitting on Santa's lap.  After a surprisingly uneventful morning we headed over to the mall to sit on Santa's lap.  Of course the girls had to scream and fight in the car and mom had to explain (over and over again) that "Santa is watching you" and "Santa knows if you are being good."  Unfortunately, this didn't seem to faze them.  Although they eventually settled down before we got there.  Much to my surprise there were only a few people in line in front of us.  We only had one moment of tears before actually getting to Santa but otherwise everyone was happy. I wasn't sure how Saige would do since last year she cried but this year she was great.  I think she was even excited.  Both of the girls sat on Santa's lap and told him what they want for Christmas. Rylie asked for a princess crown (purple to be precise) and Saige,wanting to be like her sister asked for a "crown too."  They had a great time and when it was time to leave Rylie kept going back to hug him one more time.  The photographer took some cute pics but of course Santa's eyes were closed in the one with both girls smiling.

Typical photography curse, I've seen it many a time. I love how in this picture Rylie is leaning on Santa's knee like they've been best friends for years. That girl has so much personality. I love it!!

Love you! Miss you all!
