Obligatory Post About the Yearly Santa Photo


The Christmas season doesn't officially begin until someone mails us a card or photo with their child screaming and peeing their pants on Santa's lap. There's something slightly sadistic but strangely heartwarming about the whole scene.

Every year since Jake was born, we have marched our festive butts down to the local mall and have gotten that perquisite photo of the big jolly guy and Jake, and every year Jake has the same reaction.

Pure unadulterated terror.

He was absolutely frozen. About the only thing on Jake's body that moves during the whole ordeal is his quivering chin which always quivers when he's nervous. I feel kinda bad. Chloe was just like WTF? Jake was so freaked out that he couldn't even bring himself to take a candy cane when "Santa" offered it. Poor kid.
If you care to take a walk down memory lane here are the previous years, 2007 & 2006.
ho ho ho.

Congrats on being the first to blog the Santa shot this year (it should be an annual competition).
