On our weekly pilgrimage to the cheap cheap mecca that is WalMart late last week, Raegan heard, with much glee, the announcement over the loudspeaker that Santa Clause was in the garden department taking free pictures. Well of course that decided the issue for us. Not dressed up, not cleaned up, but DANG were they excited!
Raegan got her first glance and that was it;
"Santa Closet!!! SANTA CLOSET!!!!!" and she sprinted past all other patrons ( ok, there were like 2) and vaulted her little body onto Santa Closet's lap, where she told him all about the pink milk she really wanted and asked, over and over, for a candy cane. Kael was not as impressed but whatever; they're both in the same picture. Raegan did NOT want to get down, she insisted that "the Closet" wanted some pink milk... We did manage to finally drag her bodily off of the poor man's lap and out of the store. She asks for him at least once a day ( with all the Christmas hype happening on TV and in every retail store we visit, she has no option but to notice the "Santa Closet" everywhere. )
Just now as I type she says "Hey, that's me! And the Closet!!"
She's so cute.
Side note: Look how freakin' HUGE Kael is in comparison. Look at his HANDS! Good Gawd.
