Breakfast with Santa

It's that time of year again.  Time for breakfast with Santa!  Audrey loves it, and as is his want, Keegan isn't the biggest fan.  I really feel like his understanding of Christmas is increasing this year, but we still didn't hold out much hope that this would go well.  He doesn't freak out.  He just doesn't understand and doesn't want to be bothered with it.  Tradition and social custom mean nothing to him.  Nor does he appreciate changes to his routine, especially in the morning.  After our incident at the Christmas card shoot, I truly wasn't looking forward to yesterday's breakfast, which saddened me since it has been a tradition in my family since I was a child.

Overall though, Keegan did well, and Audrey was as excited as ever.  Audrey came through and told Santa her wish for a Minnie Mouse scooter and helmet.  She has stuck with this wish since October, but I wouldn't be surprised if she changed it on Christmas Eve.  Keegan once again said he wanted "nothing" and "no" for Christmas, but afterward, he told Mamie he wanted "a car".  Our picture went a little better than last year too.  Thanks again, Mamie!  We're looking forward to many more to come.

Mamie, Keegan, and Audrey
BD was out of town on business.  Missed you, Big Daddy!
Sorry about the straw in your face, Mamie.  ;)

Tell us how you really feel, Keeg.

Audrey was saying, "Santa, Santa, Ho, Ho, Ho!"

I believe about now Audrey is thinking, "come on, Bubby!  It's Santa!"

We told Santa about Keegan's issues.
He didn't even skip a beat.

Well, I think that about sums it up!

Okay, I need blog help. I love how when you click on your pictures they come up bigger, and you can go through them like a slideshow. How did you get it to do that?? I've been trying to figure it out and can't.

Miss you guys! Love the pictures of Keegan and Audrey with Santa. So funny! :)
