We tried to talk them into sitting on his lap. Then the line behind us began to build. So we threw them up on his lap, and Santa had to hold on tight. After they got down Nathan said "Bye Santa" with tears in his eyes. Adam was a little mad at us. We thanked Santa for his strong arms. Santa complimented Adam on his amazing strength. There is nothing about this that makes sense to them. Here go sit on this guy's lap. Sure he is dressed weird, sure we are in the middle of a mall, sure you are always supposed to stay close to me in public, but here sit on his lap while I go stand by the photographer. We of course need to get this craziness documented.
