We get that a lot too. :)

Hope you can stop by and check out my WW post when you get a chance.

melissa joanne said...

That looks like reason enough to me!

Run DMT said...

Awwwwwww poor fella!

I hope you have a Merry Christmas with or without the Santa! xox

Dina @ 4 Lettre Words said...

Oh, yes! My boys were/are exactly the same. They only want Santa to visit them!! :)

Julie from Momspective said...

This is the first year we got through it without my boys screaming like the kids in "A Christmas Story".

Busy Working Mama said...

LOL I'm so bad...I've never taken my daughter to see Santa. She could probably handle it now at 3 but oh well. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Mama Whimsy said...

I think I've only seen one child/ santa pic this year where the little one wasn't crying. Poor fella. I think that's a good call :o)

Brimful Curiosities said...

We're not visiting this year either. My photo of the kids from last year was much worse than yours. My son was screaming so much it looked like the blood vessels in his head were going to explode.

dogsmom said...

I have seen much worse!
(And I was a santa elf.)
He can not take a bad picture, so adorable (and I don't mean Santa)

Dishesdone said...

Good idea :) He is adorable!
Merry Christmas!

We sort of skipped too. She didn't even want to stand near him. I don't want to traumatize her. lol

Gina Alfani said...

There was a time when I was too young for Santa . . . he scared me badly! I have a photo of me with Santa and the look on my face was priceless.

Thanks for hosting this WW linky . . . come by and link up to mine . . .

Merry Christmas to you and your family . . . Gina

Marice said...

my little one does that too! he's so cute!

Carrie said...

I'm hopeful my youngest will be cool with Santa. Regardless my oldest wants to see him so we'll go :)

Kristen @ Adventures in Mommyhood said...

Oh my! What an expression. He is kind of a scary looking guy when you're so little.

I've decided against seeing Santa this year, at least for sure for my youngest. He doesn't really like anyone except Mama right now.

Danielle said...

Priceless. My daughter was TERRIFIED of Santa, until this is...and she is almost 4! Merry Christmas!

Sara @ Halfway Crunchy said...

Oh that little lip quiver... poor guy! I don't really want to "do Santa" and this year we didn't do the obligatory Santa picture, which I'm surprised I haven't gotten flack over yet. I just know that J will flip her lid because A) she hates strangers B) if I turn my back to her when she's even with someone she's attached to she freaks (sometimes) and C) Santa even scares me!

WeeMasonMan's Mom said...

Oh my gosh, this picture is a classic! Love it!

The Paper Princess said...

Merry Christmas!

Amy @ Anktangle said...

Aww this is too cute! I just want to jump into the photo and cuddle him. =(

MomAgain@40 said...

My toddler was also not impressed with Santa this ear!

Lauren @ Hobo Mama said...

Thanks, everyone! I'm glad we're not alone. :) The full-on screaming meltdown happened just after this picture was taken. This year, he won't even get within eyesight of Santa!

It's all right, though — I couldn't believe how much this picture cost. If he did want to visit all the Santas, we'd go broke! :)

Merry Christmas to you all!

Rebekah said...

Poor little guy. Can't blame him ;)

Aww, that sweet little face just kills me! :(

Lisa C said...

Hahaha. Great picture!

So far Michael hasn't been afraid of Santa, but then, we've never had him sit on his lap.

We skipped a fee years with Santa for the same reason. I took #3 this year though & he did surprisingly well. Santa was a great guy though so it helped! Maybe next year!
