The kids went and sat on Santa's lap at the Bass Pro Shop and we got a nice photo, all for free. That place is like heaven on earth -- at least that's where a lot of animals go after they die. The Santa is completely genuine and not even a little bit stuffed so you are allowed to sit on his lap and talk to him and everything.
Katie was a bit freaked out, but she was able to manage it with Scotty along. Scotty asked for the remote controlled monster truck, while Katie asked for a pink guitar. Prospects are good for both presents.
