Thumbs down "That doesn't look like Santa!!!"

We went to the local fire station to see Santa on Saturday. It really wasn't a great Santa, but as soon as he walked in the door, Daniel whispers to me, "That doesn't look like Santa!" I think he was a bit disappointed. He did sit on his lap and play along. Last night we talked about it a bit and he thought it was just a fireman dressed as Santa. We told him that Santa sometimes sends his helpers to collect all the gift ideas from the kids since he can't be everywhere at once! I think he believed that. It won't be long before Santa is no more!
 
Now I'll just have to get him to play along for Josh!

Aw... thats too bad. I hate it when they use unrealistic Santa's. This is Brendyn's picture with Santa this year. He said the exact same thing.

Connor has asked me several times whether or not Santa is real. I just say do you think he's real? And leave it at that. I don't think it will work much longer, though.

Evan figured it out in September that there is no Santa. I was heart broken! Aidan (2 years older figured it out at the same dinner). I told them the truth that Santa is Christmas love and we can all be Santa. I told them they can now help me be Santa and fill their brothers stockings etc. I also said that as long as they act like they believe for their brothers benifit they will get a gift from Santa.

That said sometimes Evan acts like he still believes. I don't think he was really ready to figure it out. My husband and I are sometimes puzzled if he is just acting real well or if he believes again. But then he will see something and sneakily suggest it for a younger brother's stocking.
