Santa "The Rip-Off" Claus

Last Thursday we took Elliot to visit Santa for the first time - he wasn't too sure what to think of that man in a red suit but handled himself well.

His mother, on the other hand, came close to puking when she saw the pricing for pictures. "Are you kidding me?" Anna said, jaw still dropped to the floor, staring at Fred. "We get 4 3x5 pictures for $20?!!"

In a total of two minutes, Elliot was on Santa's lap, off Santa's lap and leaving the mall with pictures in hand. Twenty bucks. The least they could've done was make us come back for the pictures so it wouldn't feel like quite such a rip.

Best part is this: the receipt says Santa/Easter Photo. Having babies isn't cheap - now I know what that means.
