While waiting in line to see Santa a couple of days before Christmas, I had quotes from Elf on constant repeat in my head ... "SANTA, I know him!!" "You're not Santa ... Well if you are Santa, what did I sing to you on your birthday?! Happy Birthday, of course! (looks disappointed)" "You're an impostor. You smell like beef and cheese, you don't smell like Santa." haha Oh gosh, I love that movie. ANYWAY!
Liam was teeny tiny last Christmas and we were much too worried about germs and having him get sick that we avoided the mall at all costs and didn't make a trip to see Santa so this year was his very first time. Just as we anticipated, we plopped him in Santa's lap and he was totally neutral about the whole experience. No tears but no joyful giggles either.
Santa did manage to make him grin when he pulled out a little coloring book with a kitten on it. He knows the way to my little animal lover's heart, that Santa. He also made me crack a smile when he leaned over and said, "He asked me for a corvette for Christmas, mom. You'll have it paid off right about the time he is graduating from college." To which I proceeded to think to myself, was this Liam's request or has he been talking to my husband. ;) haha Either way, sorry boys, no corvettes this year. Santa had much better plans in store for our little guy. HO HO HO!
