Edie didn't want to meet Santa this year. She wasn't scared, just disinterested. I was secretly disappointed, but tried to let it go. I have photos from pretty much every year of me on Santa's lap and I love those photos, as terrible as some of them are.
A few days before Christmas, we went to our neighborhood children's bookstore to buy a book for a family gift exchange and Santa happened to be there with a professional photographer. We were the only ones in the store, so there was no line and the photographer offered me a deal. Santa was super nice and read her a book she picked from the shelves and then chatted with her for like 10 minutes. For this reason I forgave him his less traditional Santa-garb. She gave me all the photos on a CD, because it is apparently still 2006. Which is why it took me a week or two to get the photos on to my computer… So a little late, but here are some cute photos of the Eedster chilling with Santa:
