We knew we didn't dare take Piper to see Santa this year. With all those little kid germs, it just wasn't going to be an option for her (especially considering we haven't started her RSV vaccinations yet-- but we won't got into that now...). I still, though, wanted to get those first Santa pictures. So, my brother and his wife worked really hard to find us an alternative. I think we were all a lot more excited than Piper, but what else is new?
Considering that she was already a little grumpy (yes, still), she did really well! She wasn't too sure of the guy, but she did enjoy his beard--
Santa helped her sit:
...and he discovered her potential talent as an opera singer. I think she was practicing singing an aria--
She sat with Santa as they both endured the endless flashes of multiple cameras. Justin (ahem- "Santa") offered his condolences to Piper as he realized what she puts up with everyday.
Afterward, Piper had to sport her Santa jammies in honor of our dinner guest. And she showed off some of her almost-sitting skills, too.
Thanks again to Justin and Rachel for organizing Santa's trip from the North Pole! We love you guys!
