you better watch out, you better not pout

we took brennan to see santa today.
after waiting in line for 1 1/2 hours (which i actually didn't mind...i was partly excited to see the man myself), we finally got our turn.
i stood there with a video camera in one hand, saying brennan's name in a high pitched voice, you know "brrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeeeennnnnnnnnaaaaaaaaannnnnn,"
while sean, dad, and sandie each held cameras in their hands (and kels manned the stroller, bless her).
i think sandie got a picture of what must have been a ridiculous scene.
as for me, i'm letting your imaginations do the painting this week, so think really hard about...
two photographers with bells and a brown stuffed animal something
sandie with a disposable camera (b/c she doesn't want to learn how to use the expensive digital one dad bought her)
dad with my camera doing video and pictures
me with our video camera saying brennan's name (remember in the high pitched voice)
sean clapping his hands and making a "tsk tsk tsk" sound to get B to smile
and all of this with about 100 people in line behind us.
it was awesome.
