Today was a very productive day! First we started off by eating some delicious breakfast at the famous Cracker Barrell. Like, seriously, delicious but it should come with a warning that even thinking about this restaurant can probably make you gain 5 lbs. So after we ate breakfast we headed to the mall to get some Christmas shopping done. We didn't really have anything particular in mind, we were just going to wing it.
First though, Santa was at the mall.
If your like most people, you will look at this picture and say "Aw, I can't believe he is smiling in the Santa picture! Aren't most babies scared at this age?"
I am very proud of how nice the Santa picture that I actually bought turned out. But it wasn't all smiles the whole time. My beautiful friend Sasha was along for this great adventure and I asked her if she would snap some behind the scenes photos. Here is your backstage look at how the Santa photo shoot really went down.
Getting ready to meet Santa!
"Hi Santa, nice to meet you! I've heard some really great things about you!"
Caden is just checkin Santa out at this point
Now he is making sure Mommy isn't too far away
Just checkin out his surroundings
"Hmmm" I think Santa is starting to look a little suspicious to Caden
"My what big, fluffy hands you have"
"Momma, I feel like I've stepped out of my comfort zone!!"
"Please come get me now!"
"No, seriously! I want down!"
"Oh! Thank goodness!"
"That was a close one"
"Thanks for the hat Santa!"
"Ya know? He wasn't that bad after all!"
