I just took my lil angel for her first Santa picture and was anxious to see her reaction to the long white bearded man cloaked in red. Luckily, she did pretty well and didn't push out that pouty lower lip until the last minute of her photo session. As I grabbed her out of Santa's hands, he gave me a great pointer that I'd like to share with you.

Before visiting Santa again, pull out the previous year's pictures to get your child excited about seeing the jolly guy. She'll be fired up to go back and visit him. Santa claims to have had many happy customers year after year based on his wise counsel.

I hope this comes early enough for you to try it this holiday season, I'll be trying it next year!
