Even though we don’t believe in Santa Claus in our house, I still think it’s fun to take pictures with him every year.  It’s like taking pictures next to Mickey Mouse!  When I told Asher we were going to take pictures with Santa, he immediately started freaking out and saying no.  I showed him pictures from last year where he was smiling with Santa.  He still wasn’t buying it.  So, I bribed him with a lollipop.  That worked.  Well, it got him to walk in and go to Santa.  However, it did not get him to smile.  I guess I should of been more specific when I said, “Don’t cry.”  Next year, I’ll have to say, “Don’t pull your face down.”  Anyway, he was technically obeying me.  He wasn’t crying.  So, he got his lollipop after our visit!

After our “all smiles” posed pictures, I let them talk to the big guy with the very fake beard.

Rilyn told him, “you can get me whatever you want to get me.”

I love this next shot. You can tell without seeing Asher’s face that he is excited to tell Santa something. Santa asked him what he wanted for Christmas and Asher responded, “a lollipop.” This boy has a one track mind!
