Mr. and Mrs. Clause

We went to a church party on Friday and Mr. and Mrs. Clause came to visit the kids. Mrs. Clause was very joyful and had a great memory she new every kid by name and was full of laughter . It was so fun to watch the children as they sat and talked with Mr. and Mrs. Clause. Maddie and Garrett were very excited to sit on Santa's lap but Ben was totally scared. The minute he saw them come into the room he hid underneath the closest table. Any time anyone suggested he go see Santa he freaked. It was kinda sad. We finally just gave him the present with out sitting on santa's lap. It always makes me wonder what scares Ben so much about things like Santa and the Easter bunny. At Halloween he was the same way when we went trick or treating we went to 2 houses and he was done. He said I have enough candy I want to go home. Hopefully he will grow out of it.

Isn't is strange that they freakout about sitting on Santa's lap, yet they are totally okay with him breaking and entering whilst the whole family sleeps! lol
