We first saw Santa over my birthday weekend in November while staying at the Gaylord Palms Orlando.
>>> BUT *that* Santa had a strict "no camera" policy and didn't manage to snap any shots that were even semi-decent, which was fine >> bc we were able to see Santa this past weekend on our OWN terms (ie no staged photographer - just momma with her camera!) while enjoying brunch, too...
I love that Noah was brave enough (with Daddy's help) to walk up and hand Santa his "letter" - ie his coloring effort from earlier on in the week. ;)
I on the other hand had to almost tackle Santa as he opened Evan's letter before I knew it - and was starting to try to read the blank piece of paper that I had stuffed inside so that I could keep Ev's first handwritten santa note...! ;) Santa and I had a discreet "code" conversation then and I told Ev to just tell Santa what was on his list...
...LOVE the concentration as he recites his wishlist. :) Santa visits are serious-business to five-year-olds.
(One of my favorite Santa pics, ever!)
...Or maybe this one is. I facebooked this one as soon as I pulled it up on Sunday afternoon, I just loved it that much.
I love that we got N into the shot minus screaming hysterics, but more-than-anything LOVE that I captured his little expression & "sly-eye" that stayed glued to Santa the entire time we were in the room visiting.
& thanks to Eric for capturing this new favorite after Santa brunch Sunday am. xo.
