I thought children were supposed to love Santa...

Apparently, I was wrong.  Or maybe it's just the Eason children.  Whatever it is, I'll be lucky if I have a good decent picture of my children with the Big Guy before they're teenagers.

This picture was taken at their school last week.



Nice, huh?  At least one of my children is smiling. Sort of.

We're going to try again this weekend with the real Santa.*  Hopefully we'll have more luck with someone that is professionally trained(?) to get children to smile while sitting in the lap of a hairy, 300 lb stranger and their parents are dancing around like idiots with bells & stuffed animals all while there is a long line of more strangers watching them.  Yeah, that should work.


*Funny, I said that to Nick this morning and then immediately corrected the oxymoron that it is.

Oh girl...I feel your pain! We took Kensington and she screamed the whole time. We're going back for round two on Saturday. Why do we do this to ourselves????

I always hated Santa. And Eva has yet to get within 3 feet of the man. I would say that most children aren't sure of him... they just like the idea of presents. :)

Lori, I hope that's not your dad or something... cause that santa looks CREEPY... he's "peering" a little too much if you ask me.
