"Parades, Buffets, and The Double-Take"

I so had to make time to get this picture up for u all to see.....it's hilarious.....
last thurs was our christmas parade here in little ole magnolia,,,or as some refer to it "magnowhere".....we can watch the parade almost from our backyard,,,,and it ends at the university, which is also close to our house.....so david took emma grace and warnock to watch,, while i stayed inside with katie mae,,, since it was VERY cold that evening......i was excited to find out that santa was going to be at the university after the parade for free pics!....i cannot stand to pay the ridiculous price of 20.00 for a mall santa pic.....it drives me crazy!!!....but i always end up forking over the money because every year i display all the years past santa pics as part of my christmas decor......it's very cute to look at all the faces in the pics....
anyways,, needless to say i was def going to take full advantage of the FREE santa pic this year.....so i dressed the girls in some red and green and warnock matched in his red hat and camo coveralls...lol....good enough for me......
after the parade we went to the university where we had a great buffet dinner with all the trimmings,,,and headed down to see santa.....the kids played while we stood in line...and katie right along with them.........when it was our turn , emma grace and warnock ran up to santa and hugged him and warnock climbed up in his lap.....so i took katie up there and set her on the other side of his lap and started to back away......that's when it happened.....she did it....the famous "double-take".....if u've ever seen it,,, u know what i'm talking about.......she had no idea who was holding her,, she'd just realized i wasn't.....so she looked up to see who had her,,,and then again.......and then the horror filled her sweet little face...she tried to get out of his lap and away......poor thing.....i was surprised really......eg and w have never cried or been afraid of santa or the easter bunny, or anything else.......so i didn't expect katie mae to be........shame on me.......
i told the photographer to snap one quick...just so i could have one.....i'm glad i did...it's in a frame with all the rest now.......and i know that we're all going to get a laugh out of this pic for years to come.......

That pic is hilarious! It's a good thing you got a shot of that cause you are right it will fun to look at each year! Look at your son's face, he looks amused by her reaction. And your other daughter is just ignoring everything and smiling perfectly. It's too cute!
