It's fun to have kids, because then you can buy them stuff that you like to play with. I think Kevin will love his presents, but for a while, we might love them more.
We even got the dog a few presents. She desperately needs a new bed, so we found one on sale at Petsmart the other day. Poor girl has been sleeping in a cardboard box on some blankets. Usually, she actually just sleeps on the carpet, but I think she'll like her new bed.
We were shopping at Petsmart when we found that you could take pictures with Santa there. Kevin is usually very friendly, and he loves other people. However, when Santa picked him up, Kevin didn't know what to think. At first, his lower lip began to quiver, but he never quite cried. He just studiously avoided looking at the bearded man and did his best to get away.
After the pictures were taken and Santa put him back in the cart he began to smile at him, but it took him a few minutes to feel entirely comfortable with the man. Then they were friends. Here are the pictures from Kevin's first encounter with Santa Clause.
At our church Christmas party, they wanted to make the program more about the Savior, so they did a live Nativity and Santa didn't come. Which is great, but I missed having my son pose with Santa. I was glad that I had another opportunity to do so.
