Last week we took Xander to see Santa at our local mall. It didn’t go over well. Ever since a weird incident at a Largo, FL Whataburger fast food joint with a deranged homeless man, Xander has been afraid of unfamiliar men. Santa was no different. He refused to sit on Santa’s lap, and he refused to sit on Nick’s lap next to Santa. With the help of a book, Elmo, and a sneaky Santa (aka: Santa goes bye-bye then sneaks up behind Xander for the photo when Xander isn’t looking), we finally got a snapshot of Xander with Santa Claus for the scrapbook.
