roman and i are still up in delaware enjoying our vacation for a few more days. toby had to leave today to go back to work, so we are staying with mommom for a few more days. i hear that bluffton had some snow, but i'm willing to bet it wasn't as much as we got up here! check out my snowbaby!
the first one was easy. he was 3 months old. we just put him on santa's lap and took the picture. no problem.
the second one was not so easy. he wouldn't go near santa. we got a picture of poppa holding him near santa, but he was still freaked out to be so close.
last year, i think we took him to the mall and might have waved to santa from about 100 feet away.
this year, santa was a hit! he wanted very badly to tell santa what he wants for Christmas and he is very into the holiday season. he was quite nervous on the ride there and even when it was our turn, i thought he might back out, but he pulled it off!
checking out the beard to make sure it was the real thing
not so sure of this guy
okay, guess i better tell him what i want... hey, santa ain't so scary after all
okay, this is getting a little scary
feeling a little more relaxed with old St. Nick...
with our santa visit out of the way, he can relax and have some ice cream. yum.
the bluffton Christmas parade was today. i didn't know until yesterday. i like last minute plans. since it ends in our neighborhood, we figured why not? load up the wagon and walk a little. we were lucky enough to run into roman's best friend mady and her parents. so we camped out together. roman really enjoyed it and sat on the curb attentively most of the time. most of the floats were kind of lame, but i guess it's pretty exciting to a three year old when someone just throws candy at you from a slow moving car decorated with tinsel. we even saw an undecorated car with the driver wearing a showercap. we weren't sure she was supposed to be in the parade, but she was throwing candy. we didn't take that candy.
yum... taking a break for some "see" food getting his groove on... look! it's santa! look at all the candy they got!
