the kids have been asking to visit their friend santa for a while now, so we stopped by yesterday (we went to the one at the plaza hotel, keeping with tradition!) samson walked straight up to him, “hey santa! i have an elf hat. like the elves in the north pole!” he also asked to “sit on santa’s lap for 3 minutes.” when i said, “sure, you can sit on his lap for a minute…” he cut me off with, “no, 3!” while showing me three fingers in the air! haha!

eleanor was also here and wearing her santa hat no less (i have a feeling we might be seeing that hat well after the holiday passes. christmas through april?!) but she didn’t feel like taking a photo with santa. she did however, ask him for roller blades (WHAT?!) and knee/elbow pads as well (oh goodness) and also double checked what kind of cookie he likes best (it’s chocolate chip if you’re wondering.) other moments worth noting, conrad trying to give santa a kiss (i do not kid!) and samson telling santa is his beard is “too long.”

i sure do love this time of year. MERRY CHRISTMAS, you guyssssssssss!!!!!!!

    So cute. I have to mention this Santa is definitely more Santa like for pictures than any one I’ve ever seen. New York does it right ;)

    I LOVE that your didnt force Eleanor to sit on Santas lap for the picture, I see so many families doing that. Not feeling like sitting in a strange mans lap shouldn’t be forced, Santa or not :P

    Super cute! I don’t know if you know about them, but Big Apple Portraits on the UWS hosts Santa Sessions each year where the kids get more time with Santa and do different poses. It would be right up your alley!

  13. This must have been the highlight of Santa’s day! Your cuties are too sweet to handle. Thanks for sharing your NYC holiday magic with us. We are living vicariously through you!
