We have learned that going during the week, at night, is a great time to see Santa! We only waited about 20 minutes and after the pic we had dinner at the mall. It is a great date night for the whole family and a refreshing change in our routine. SD was all sorts of excited leading up to the event..and then, not so much. Linus of course had no idea what was going on! I love the picture because although they are not both smiling, or even looking at the camera, but it captures their experience with Santa at this time in their life.
Just for fun and comparison's sake, here is the Santa pic from last year too!
One thing, I totally don't get, is the dressed to the hilt to see Santa. While waiting in line, some people came up behind us, and I am not lying when I tell you that the 5 year old little girl not only had on a party dress, that I am pretty sure had a petticoat underneath it, but her hair was curled and piled on top of her head making a beautiful backdrop for her tiara!
