Typical 1st Santa Picture

Thursday I ventured over to the mall to get the kids picture taken with Santa. I was totally fine with doing this by myself without the help of John. Its weird how you get extremely courageous when you have a second baby, normally I'm so stressed out and basically need John to hold my hand in these situations. I was smart this year and knew if we went early and during the week we could avoid the mall crowds. Well, I was right on!
We were the only ones there to see Santa and while Addison was excited I really don't think she knew what she was suppose to do. When Santa asked what she wanted for Christmas she made him name off a bunch of possibilities in which she responded "Yup" to each and every item. She walked away smiling and perhaps a little more confused. As far as would think by looking at this picture that he was just pissed the whole time...NOPE! Brody was actually sleeping up until I placed him on Santa's lap. They even got some great shots of him and his double chin as he looked on like "why the hell did you just wake me up" of course topping it off with the famous "Stephanie scowl" written all over his face. He didn't start crying until the very end and that's when they captured this PERFECT picture. When I went to pick him up I noticed there was a fan pointing in Brody's direction so I have a feeling its the fan that set him off not Santa. Anyway I was extremely happy with the selection I had to chose from, I just had to get this one of him freaking out its just wayyyy to perfect for that 1st Santa experience! Can't wait to show it to his college girlfriend. ;o)
