Jilly hearts Santa

Last night was a momentous occasion in Jillian's life: She met Santa! We went to our church Christmas party and had a nice dinner, hung out with friends, and caroled for a bit. (side note: I think Jilly has a new boyfriend. I caught her and Jaxson flirting quite a bit. She's such a cradle robber- he's 6 months younger than her!) Anyway, after caroling as a group, Santa Claus showed up! Hooray for Santa. It was cute to see all the little kids lined up, waiting to see him. We thought it would be fun for Jilly to meet him and we'd get a cute picture. So I waited in line with her and had Anna the elf, put Jilly on Santa's lap, so I could get the shot. I didn't think she'd be too bothered, she's pretty much over stranger anxiety. I was wrong. She flipped out. I got one picture with her crying. Once the line was almost gone, I decided we should try again. This time Steve went up with her and sat right next to her. I got a picture on our camera and my cell phone, but had the same result:


She did not approve of Santa at all! We think it was probably the big beard that scared her. I know it's pretty common for kids to be scared. It actually amused us both (we're such mean parents). Hopefully next year will be better. Now I'm glad I didn't spend tons of money to take her to the mall Santa. Hehehe. Like I've said many a time, Crazy Baby... ;-)

So sad but funny! This post is inspiring me to pull out and post about Gracey's first time on Santa's lap. Quite similar to Jilly's.

Her shoes are super cute.
