Who's Ready for Santa?

These boys...

Evan and Brody are ready for Santa to come tonight.  

Tonight is the night the big guy comes to visit.  We will be ready for him with cookies and milk waiting and little ones tucked into bed (hopefully at a decent hour) and dreaming of sugar plums.  Do kids still dream of sugar plums?  Do they even know what sugar plums are?  On that note, I'm not sure I know what sugar plums are, but I am sure my kids will be dreaming sweet dreams of Christmas morning.  In anticipation of this night, we did have to visit the man in the red suit to whisper what we want this year.  We visited our same spot at our local mall where we've been lucky to see the same Santa (the one and only of course...wink) every year since Evan was a baby.  Evan has always loved Santa and even pulled his beard the first year.  I really wish I had that memory on video.  Our Santa doesn't allow video or other photography so that you have to purchase pictures from him, but we did get a pretty decent deal online this year to get printed pictures and free downloads of the other images.  We had high hopes of Brody also loving Santa after his first Christmas in 2011, but 2012 proved a different story and he continued that theme this year when he lost it when we sat him on Santa's lap.  So yes, Mommy had to get in the picture to get a decent shot of both boys in one picture together.

Evan's perfect pose as usual.

And Brody's not so perfect "I wanna get down" pose.

Santa was a good sport about it.  Very professional!

And he calmed down with Mommy holding him.  This was the best shot of Evan.

And the best shot of Brody with Evan looking at something up high.

And the print worthy shot! We'll call it a success.

  4. We didn't get new Christmas jammies this year and now I'm a little sad about it. Maybe we can get Easter ones.....do they have Easter jammies?

    That's awesome that it is the same Santa every year!
