I really thought this would be the year of the classic crying kid with Santa. But we dodged a bullet. He did really great in line (which was only about 5 minutes), where he said "Merry Christmas" and "Hi Santa" and watched all the other kids take their turns. He did good coming up to Santa and making small talk. But when he got on his knee and we backed out of the shot, he started to get whiny and reaching out for us. Luckily, he calmed down a bit and we managed to get this shot. He's not smiling, but he's also not bawling. So we'll take it. He told Santa thank you for the free coloring book and said goodbye.
