Santa's in Town

I know it's early, but Santa booked up fast this year! :) Phipps Plaza lets you make appointments to see Santa, which saves a lot of time because you don't have to wait in an extremely long line. This year they ONLY did appointments online, and they booked up in October. The last two years I was able to call and make an appointment, so I didn't worry about it. Well, we had to get them to squeeze us in this year. Next year, I'll be ready at midnight the night the appointment system goes online. :)

But we did get to see Santa. Hudson was really excited until we got up to him. :) He started to cry, so Santa talked to him for a minute. Then I just put him on Santa's lap. He started to cry, but Josh and I were behind the photographer saying, "Don't you smile!" He couldn't help but smile through his tears. :) So funny. The reverse psychology works like a charm with Hudson. We do it with his dinner too. "Don't you eat that." ha ha. Anyway, by the end of the visit with Santa, he had stopped crying, and was discussing his list with St. Nick. The photographer took another picture so that the glisten of tears wouldn't be in his eyes. So nice! We love seeing Santa, and we will ALWAYS go to Phipps to see him. They are so great every year!!! They let you take your own pictures and video, which is RARE! Santa spends a lot of time with each kid talking to them, taking pictures, and making it a great experience. He probably spent 5 minutes just talking to Hudson about his list. Here are the pictures from our visit. Merry Christmas!
