This is a LO of my kids going to see Santa - Not the happiest picture! - LOL! I got the idea for the background from one of Scrap_Happy_Mom's scraptathlon entries. (Thanks Tracey!). I cut the letters in Santa out of chipboard to give them a little dimension against all the different patterns of paper. (i'm not shopping anymore this month so I had to improvise)
Going to See Santa at the Mall
(left page) - Cameron and Meghan were so excited to go to the mall and see Santa. As we stood in line, we talked about what we wanted for Christmas, and what we were going to say to Santa. Meghan kept pointing and yelling, "It's Santa!" Then when it was our turn, neither kid would smile!
(right page) - When she finally came face to face with Santa, Meghan was clearly not sure what to think. She wouldn’t smile. She wouldn’t tell him what she wanted for Christmas. She just stared at him. Eventually, she did manage to nod when he asked of she wanted dolls or toys for Christmas. All in all, she looked her happiest after the visit with Santa was over. As soon as we walked away, she started waving at him as if he were her favorite person.
Cameron was very excited to see Santa. This year, he understood that there were most likely presents in his future and he had been staring at the Toys-R-Us ad longingly, for weeks. As soon as Santa asked, Cameron had a long list of wishes. He wanted cars, monster trucks, K’nex, Rescue Heroes, and most importantly, T-Rex Mountain. Cameron remembered to say please and nodded vigorously when asked if he had been good. Overall, we had a very successful visit with Santa.
