In the St. Nick of time, we made it over to Macy's yesterday to see Santa.

The elves gave us an estimated wait time of 40 minutes to an hour and while I avoided clocking it in an attempt to maintain my sanity, that seems about right. Not bad for the day before Christmas Eve. There was plenty to look at while waiting and we bumped into some friends, which helped pass the time.

Growing up, it was a tradition for my aunts to bring us into Manhattan via the Long Island Railroad to see Santa. I vividly remember the anticipation (and agony) of strolling through Santaland to get to the big guy himself.

I was delighted to see what appeared to be some of the exact same features as when I was a child. Even Santa's sleigh had some old school toys like a Smurf and Kermit the Frog:

Other than demanding to be carried the entire time, Big Bub was as well-behaved as I could have hoped.

Except when it came time to sit on Santa's lap, of course. I had no intention of being in the photo (as evidenced by my appearance) but Bub was legitimately terrified.

Oh, and check out my hand on Santa's lap! Completely not conscious. I swear! Guess that answers the question if I've been naughty or nice.

Bub will totally be submitting this shot to AwkwardFamilyPhotos.com in a few years.

Did you visit with Santa this season? How'd it work out for you?
