Margot Meets Santa

Over the weekend, we got to visit Santa as a family. We had planned on getting a picture of Santa alone with our 3 girls, but because of our scared-to-death toddler, the whole family got to sit on Santa’s lap!

It was pretty hilarious, and I’m glad we can finally add a “bad santa” photo to our collection. Margot was pretty intrigued by the big man. She didn’t cry, but she wasn’t flashing him her beautiful smile, either.

She just watched her big sisters and listened intently as they told Santa what they wanted for Christmas.

All in all, it was a lot of fun. We’ve got another great experience down in the books! I love carrying on traditions during the holiday season with all 3 girls.
