WW: Giovanni is NOT a Fan!

Saturday we took the boys to the mall to see the big guy, Santa...Can we say disaster?!

We honestly, didn't think either would be scared since we had just gotten back from Disney World and both loved all the characters.. So, we were a little shocked when Giovanni made it clear that he was NOT a fan of Santa!

 Do be fair, we waited in line for an hour, both boys were exhausted and bored. And when Dominic saw Santa, he was so excited!! He ran and jumped into Santa's arms, so Santa took the lead and gave him a giant bear hug. Giovanni did the same, as did Santa, but Giovanni didn't so much like the giant bear hug.. which then led to a massive freak out moment! As uplifting as it was to see Santa so happy and excited, I think he might have scarred Giovanni for life. LOL..

Which was all good to know, since Santa would be visiting our house the next day for a family party... lol Yep, that was fun! ;)

Here's the beloved Santa pic from the mall.

And here's one from the party at our home on Sunday.

 Yep, still not a fan!


  1. I haven't done Santa pictures in ages!! Mostly because my kids were never fans, either. :-) Adorable pics of your angels, nonetheless.

  2. Awe thats no fun. I know all my grandchildren are not so thrilled with Santa this year. I am glad you were able to get pictures.

  3. such a lovely pic with your family and of course with Santa too! :)
