Cute!  I love how everyone else's kids are more cooperative than mine.  Tommy outright refused to sit on Santa's lap this year and Lola cried :mellow:

My wife was apparently just shocked.  Christmas last year, at 18 months, Tim wanted NOTHING to do with Santa.  But this year we excitedly waited in line, walked up to Santa, happily got in his lap, and had no problem flashing a big smile for the camera. :)

Andrew of course has a fairly stunned look, but I'm told he had to be woken up out of his car seat for the picture.

Because I need to prove my boys and cuter than Valmy's:  :P

The bald one on the left looks like he's up to something.  Plotting.  Probably lunch.

Here's Lola.  Yeah, Santa always has that "WTF" look on his face when he has to deal with my kids :mellow:

Adorable pics, guys. :wub:

I really think that there's something seriously wrong with me, but I really, really hated the whole Santa Visit thing. I did it only so long as I absolutely had to, then stopped. It was nothing more than a lesson in annoyance, and the kids never really seemed to care at all.

Apparently, Lola agrees with me. :lol:

I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away...

Timmy seemed excited to go visit Santa. :)

Apparently he asked Santa for "presents". :lol:

I don't know how much "plotting" he can do since he started getting mobile in the last few days, but only in reverse.  I had to rescue him from underneath the Christmas tree a couple of times over the weekend.

18 months ago didn't Santa live to the South of him?
I've given it serious thought. I must scorn the ways of my family, and seek a Japanese woman to yield me my progeny. He shall live in the lands of the east, and be well tutored in his sacred trust to weave the best traditions of Japan and the Sacred South together, until such time as he (or, indeed his house, which will periodically require infusion of both Southern and Japanese bloodlines of note) can deliver to the South it's independence, either in this world or in space.  -Lettow April of 2011

Timmy says "daddy, I need to go potty".

He then races off to the bathroom.

I follow, but Timmy is hiding behind the door.  As I approach, he calls our "where's Tim?"  When I enter the bathroom he jumps out and goes "boo!", and I pretend to be surprised.  This is an old game with us.

But Tim then says "Don't worry Daddy, I'm not a monster.  I'm Timothy!" and gives me a big hug.  :wub:
