Meeting Santa

Last night Ryan and I took Kolton to the local mall to meet Santa. It seems pretty silly to take a 6 month old who has no clue what's going on to meet Santa, but we wanted the classic picture. We were very curious to see how Kolton would react and both bet that he would cry (I think because we were both secretly hoping that that was what would happen...I know, harsh, but aren't the crying pictures so funny?). To our surprise, he didn't even fuss. As you can tell by the picture, he wasn't quite sure what was going on or who was holding him, but there was no crying to be heard. We had a hard time getting him to look in the direction of the camera because he wanted to look up at the curious man holding him. When it was time to get him from Santa, the man asked if we really wanted to take him with us because he was enjoying holding such a cute kid that wasn't crying. Here is the picture.....

Yes...I know, Santa's shirt is hideous!! We were one of the first ones in line and as he came in and sat down, he took of his coat and I about died! I went to the mall today and happened to walk by the Santa and he was taking pictures with his coat on!! Should have waited until today!
