My neice, Sophie in her first Christmas Dress
Awe. Look how they are holding hands.
Our Christmas Day (part 2) comes this Monday, as we visit my side of the family in Corvallis.
After Santa made his rounds, the children took turns sitting on his lap.
(sorry for the pathetic quality, I was snapping stills with our cheapo digital camcorder)
We were pretty sure she wouldn't sit on his lap. I blame myself for this. I now feel pretty strongly that parents should not put their babies on Santa's lap until they are old enough that they want to. As an infant or toddler, they don't know the difference between Santa or the boogey-man, it seems to be traumatic enough that they become shy around Santa for years to come. That's my opinion, anyway. I wish I didn't do it when she was a two-year-old, but it sure made for a cute and funny Christmas card that year.
