Adventures with Santa...

We were very hopeful that this would be the year that Carli would go see Santa.

They got off to a rough start when she was 14 months old...

At 2 things were a little better, but she still wasn't so sure about things and refused talk to him...

And at 3, we just knew this would be the year! She has talked about him for quite awhile now. Our mail man actually looks like Santa, and she loves to wave to him and yell hello! We even snagged a "session" with Santa at our church thinking that he would be in a familiar place and Carli would warm up to the idea of talking to and taking a picture with Santa...

Instead, we got a family photo...
She did talk to him, but he got in trouble when he attempted to pat her arm. Ha! She told him she would be flying high up in the air to go see Naggy and Pappy, she would stay in a hotel and come home to see Grammy's snowman. Santa just smiled and nodded!

On my birthday we went to eat and decided to check out Santaland. We thought we would give Santa another shot, b/c Carli was so excited that he was going to be there. She was going to hold Ava's hand and take her to see Santa...Ava took one look at him and figured out Carli's intentions and immediately started crying. And so, I was able to capture my 30th birthday photo with Santa, just like I planned!

Maybe next year Santa...
