When Maddy was little I took her to get her picture with Santa. She wasn't too sure about the old man in the suit so I had to jump in the picture with her. We have never returned for another picture until tonight. Yes, at ages 9 and 7, Ryan and Cade finally get to pose with St Nick himself. Maddy pouted the whole time. Actually for the last few days she has not wanted to get her picture taken. "I am 12 and am too old to get a Santa picture." Lucky for us, we had 2 families behind us in line who had high schoolers who also had to endure the same torture as our girl. She received no sympathy. We finally made it to the front of the line and it seems Maddy may have warmed up a little bit. The picture turned out great. I am so happy I paid the $10 to Groupon to put Maddy thru this. As the kiddos are getting ready to leave Santa, Maddy turns, trips over Santa's boot and falls flat on the ground! Sing with me now..."you better not pout I'm telling you why!"
