The Blog Tech and Santa

 I got an early Xmas present yesterday.  Every since my kids were little, I always asked them to take pics with Santa for me. During their teenage years it was a struggle but The Blog Tech always came through.

 In 2004, he really went for it.

 He visited every Santa in the area.

 He didn't quite sit on their laps because that just would have been weird.

 Not that it wasn't weird.  I'm pretty sure people grabbed their kids and held them tight and walked circles around him.

 Occasionally he got his sister to join in.

 But he persisted.

 Sometimes he looked like Santa's auditor.

But Santa and I both gave him the hugs he deserved.  What a guy!  Hey Blog can get off the Santa hook if you give me a grandchild!

That is a tradition I like :-)

Too bad I always was terrified of our Yuke gnome :-)

Happy Christmas!

Yule gnome is what it is supposed to say :-)
"Sometimes he looked like Santa's auditor." That gave me an honest-to-gawd out-loud belly laugh! Have a wonderful Christmas, Joyce! Best wishes to you all.
A grandchild, now that's a great Yule present. I hope you get your wish darlin. Happy Yule to you and your family.

That is super cool. Wolfie's first meeting with Santa was such an anticlimax, our baby was utterly unimpressed.

That is SO AWESOME! What a wonderful tradition! Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family and I'll send some Grandchild vibes out into the Universe for ya! :-)
What a sentimental guy. And a real good son. Happy Holidays. Enjoy!

I so admire the Blog Tech's ingenuity...and bond to his Mom....
Now if he will just latch on to your permission to halt the Santa
sittings with him and substitute a new Blog techie Jr., wouldn't that
be something.......
What a lovely thing for him to do and what incredibly realistic Santa's you have. Ours always seem to be spotty youths in badly fitting suits and beards!
