Now for a flashback at all of our past Santa visits:
|2012: Carter didn't visit Santa since he was 10 days old on Christmas and was born 4 weeks early, no need to expose him to germs! But I had to add a Christmas picture because look how cute he was!|
|2013: Our neighbor dressed as Santa for a community center event so he came by beforehand so we could get a picture.|
|2014: Carter did pretty well and then Santa insisted we take another picture with me sitting on his lap since I was pregnant.|
|2015: Carter only posed for this picture because he was cheesing for a girl who was in line by us.|
|2015: Elise was such a chill baby with Santa. Carter wasn't in our picture at Bass Pro because he panicked at the last minute, running away. He clotheslined himself on the rope for the line and knocked it over along with himself!|
|2016: I hated that Elise was crying in the picture but I was pleased to have both kids in the picture this year!|
