Santa Claus is Coming To Town

This year, Ledger has been VERY wary of Santa Claus.  We've been working with Ledger to expose him to Santa to get him used to the idea of a stranger in a red suit.  This week, we went to our THIRD "Pictures with Santa" session.  The first two sessions were not successful -- we have photos of Ledger sitting on my lap in the near vicinity of Santa trying very hard to escape.  We weren't feeling too confident about getting any workable shots for Christmas this year... but I guess the third time is the charm!!

Tony Guzman, a local photographer, was offering a free 8x10 photo with Santa with a donation of 2 canned items.  We couldn't pass up that deal!  When we got there, Ledger was pretty nervous around Santa.  Tony and Santa were both very patient and willing to give Ledger some time to get used to the situation.  After a few minutes... and a candy cane bribe... Ledger was willing to sit with Santa for pictures!  It was great.  We had a wonderful time and got some awesome pictures!!
