My little princess Izzie (3.5 y.o.) had been apprehensive about sitting with Santa, but finally mentioned she was up for a tête à tête to inform him of her interests in Easy-Bake Ovens and Pillow Pets. I capitalized on the chance. After a half hour in line, as we got closer to the big guy, she started mentioning second thoughts. I was in an evil mood, and handed screaming Izzie to their helper-elf, who assured her that this was not the Bad Santa from the mall across town. She was unpersuaded. I told the elf I had cash and I had my orders, so to the horror of the other children watching we basically water-boarded the child in front of them. Merry Xmas!

are there still ez-bake ovens? i thought real light bulbs were illegal or something....
Izzie is a great name by the way.
Funny. Great photo too. You should find some Christmas photo contest to submit that to.
A few years back when my kids were that age, we hopscotched down Rt 101 in Minnetonka -- in Dr Falkenstein's neck of the woods -- the week before Xmas, stopping at various bigbox stores. At each there was a Santa, and after a while my kids asked me about it. I explained Santa must have a very similar schedule to ours today, also making his way down Rt 101, getting to each store just before we did.
I agree with Dave, a funny picture with a cute little (3.5 y.o.) girl with a Santa, you should join any Christmas photo contest. By the way, it is really headache to all the parents on how to choose a Christmas present for our little child. Anyway, Merry Xmas & Happy New Year 2011!
I love the photo, your daughter is so cute & remember to buy her a great Xmas present this year. Merry Xmas!
