This past Tuesday, Ryan and I met his parents at Park City Mall to do our annual Christmas shopping. While there, we figured we would get Ella's picture with Santa. How fun it would be!
We dressed her in the cutest red sweater dress, white tights, and no shoes. I didn't have any that matched her outfit, so you better believe I wouldn't dare put a non-matching pair on to complete the outfit. Let's be realistic. As we were driving there, we were discussing what we thought her reaction would be....either crying or pulling at his beard. Ultimately, we thought crying!
So we get ourselves all prepared to hear Ella scream bloody murder when she is sitting on Santa's lap. Instead, this is what we get.........
Yep, the ultimate look of disgust. NOTHING was getting her to smile. Not the game of "Power Up" we play at home that she loves, or any of the silly things we were trying, that we would rather only do at home or around people we know...not in the middle of the holiday hustle and bustle. I have a feeling we will be seeing this look a lot when she is a teenager (as they say, "payback is a bitch").
Despite her utter disgust, we did manage to get a cute picture when she decided to look up at Santa. Regardless, they are both a keeper:)
