Santa, and other things

In an attempt to beat the Holiday rush that usually surrounds Union Square, and a visit to Santa, we decided to pay the jolly old fat man a visit today. I have to say that we were not surprised by Nico's reaction to Santa. I mean who really wants to be placed on a stranger's knee anyway? I wish the pictures were a little better, but Mike was taking them on the sly (Nico did not sit still long enough for the lady taking pictures to get one). Apparently you are not allowed to take pictures with your own camera at the North Pole, news to me!

We rounded out the evening by buying our Christmas tree, and then running out of gas on the way home, oops! Later, on inspection of our storage unit I discovered that our Christmas decorations were nowhere to be found! Could they be at my parent's house? Looks like I am going to find out tomorrow. All in all kind of a funny day.


safely out of Santa's clutches

Santa can be scary. At least she looked adorable while being scared! :-)

Santa is scary
I'm with Nico.
Kai is terrified too. The last time we went to the mall she said "I don't want to walk by Santa".
so we avoided the center court area.
poor santa.
