Santa's expression is just as great as the kid's - Santa looks as if he's so sorry about making him cry. I think I feel sorrier for Santa than for your grandson. #10434541

Yes, Nikki - I agree. I was lucky to capture this Santa-encounter. He's a "good" Santa. #10435516

While our daughter was home for Thanksgiving, we took the opportunity to bring our grandson to Santa's House in Decatur, Illinois' Central Park. Mrs. Claus sometimes joins Santa in visiting with the kids. Only one family is allowed in the house at a we had "quality" time with Santa.
