Brunch with Santa

18 Dec

The annual pilgrimage to sit upon Santa’s lap and make all holiday bequests was upon us.


Lucas had zero hesitation this year.  There was no hiding behind my legs or clinging to Tim’s shirt.  There was only a confident march to Santa’s side and a proud request for an airplane.  He told Santa that Benjamin was in the market for a “little elephant” and showed Santa with his hands exactly how big the elephant should be.

The little one?  He was rather unphased by the whole thing.  I imagine next year will be quite a different story!
