Christmas Anticipation

Scott and I took Jonah to the mall yesterday to have his picture taken with Santa Claus. We stood in line for about half an hour, entertained by the kids in front of us who busied themselves entertaining Jonah. We declined the picture packages offered by Santa's elves (which started at $14 for one picture), opting instead to try to capture the moment with our own camera. It was made quite clear to us that we only had time for a single shot, good or not. We expected a 'not' shot, as Jonah is sometimes shy around strangers, and we got to the front of the line at exactly 7:30, which is his bedtime. We were pleasantly surprised with the result we got, which captures some of the wonder of a child who finally gets his chance to have a moment alone with the Big Man...

So, what do you think?

Great picture of Jonah! I can hear his words to the jolly old man (he really looks like the 'real' thing)... Jonah said to Nick, "Now if you aren't too tired I have started my list just for you..." Not Jonah's grandmother but one to Avery and Owen, MoMo is what Avery calls me. Owen is just six months so he doesn’t call me anything. Just love checking in on your blog. The blessed Christmas we have in Christ our Lord and New Year to you and the family.
