Santa Anxiety

There is no man more frightening than Santa Claus. He sees you when you're sleeping, he knows when you're awake. He knows if you've been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake!

Alana is an old pro. She loves Santa. Ava, on the other hand, finds him to be the scariest thing she's ever seen.
Santa and I are the only ones who found it necessary to look at the camera. Ava was too terrified, and Alana was looking at David.

This picture was so not worth the $14, but I'm still glad I got it, because my kids are growing at breakneck speed.
























My favorite kind of Santa photo is the free kind. I haven't seen Santa at Walmart this year, that's why we went to the mall.

Ava was too small to care who was holding her last year, and Santa gave Alana candy, so she posed for a picture. They've grown way too much since last year!

























Alana was scared of Santa when she was one, just like Ava.


































But once I got in the picture she was fine. Still apprehensive about the scary guy in the red suit, but not crying.































Alana's first Christmas, and she got her picture taken with possibly the grouchiest Santa ever. At least this pic was free too!































Nothing scary about this chubby Santa! Alana was so cute when she was a baby, now she's all grown and thinks she needs her own ipod and to wear makeup. She's only four!



























Next year Ava will probably still be afraid of Santa, but maybe she'll come around. After all, who could hate someone who brings them so many presents? Alana certainly loves him, but she has lots of toys to prove his existence already.

I didn't even bother trying to get a picture of Camden with Santa this year because I knew exactly how it would go-- and that picture of Alana at one year old with Santa pretty much sums it up. He has bad enough stranger anxiety as it is; add in a fat man in a beard and red suit and I can't even imagine the terror that would be the result. Maybe next year when he's two. Cute pictures though!

Haha! My daughter had to take a picture with Santa this year, once for me at a Christmas party and again for my mom at the mall. Poor thing, even if she sees Santa on tv she keeps an eye on him.

Story of Maddixs life!! Hopefully this year will go much better! She still looks cute even when she's scared to death!
