Holiday Bliss ~ December 19

Holiday Bliss

The boys have had varying opinions of Santa over the years.  Sometimes, they think he's a very nice guy, others they steer pretty clear.  One year they asked us not to let him in our house.   We left a note asking him to leave any gifts on the steps like the UPS man.

When they go to the mall to see him, they always start out wary.  They keep a good distance for a while, and talk until they feel a little bit more comfortable.  If they get the feeling that he's an okay guy, they'll get a little closer.

Here is how it went this year.   Not bad.  They sat down fairly close.  No eye contact, but good conversation.  It was a nice afternoon.
