And here is our 2008 photo:
Hannah was ready this time. She was pumped, couldn't stop talking about it all the way to the mall. Brought stuff to show santa, the works. As soon as we got into the mall and she could see his area though she immediately started in with the "I'M SCARED"!! And tried to get away. Fortunately there were people ahead of us in line, so she was able to watch and warm up that way. Eli was not so sure about it. He cried the first time we tried. But Santa was recovering from a bad cold and tried to cough up a lung, so we had to take a break and get back on his lap. Then Eli just stared...but he looks like he's saying "get me out of here now!". As we were leaving Hannah goes "I guess I do like Santa after all!".
