December in Leonia means cooler temps, shorter days, and a visit from Santa Claus. I know what you're thinking - why would Santa bother visiting a small town like Leonia during his busy season. Unfortunately, there are some questions which will remain a mystery.
For Julia, this was her first time meeting her northern neighbors. Generally a social person, Julia was a little uncomfortable with seeing someone with facial hair that was longer than herself and a stomach big enough to hold a small child.
Santa tells Julia that she's been naughty this year and will get a lump of coal. Meanwhile, David stares at the bag of lollipops next to Mrs. Claus.
I get into the picture to console Julia. (Will there ever be a nice holiday picture that I won't have to appear in?)
Overall the kids had a good time running around, and eating their goodies. David enjoyed his lollipop while Julia ate three large sugar cookies. At least Julia won't have to sit on Santa's lap again until next year.
