Santa, Joshua, and Coca-Cola

So we went to Walmart to get our free picture with Santa--can you tell it was free by the atrocious coke-case chair? Oh yeah and how about the cardboard cut-out of a fireplace in the background picking up the glare? Anyways it was a great picture of Joshua and I can't complain about that. Joshua wanted to go see him all on his own. Whitney was so excited to see Santa but when it was her turn to take her picture, she screamed her pants off. Oh well, better luck next year!
