Ho, Ho, Ho....It's Santa Jo Jo!!

This is a great story!! At our ward Christmas Party, we were sitting at our table minding our own business, when a sweet lady from the ward approached us and gave us a sob story about how nobody would agree to be the Santa for the kids at the end of the program and asked (begged) Joel to step up to the plate!! After much laughing about his response..."you asking me because I'm a little pudgy?" And the sweet lady stammering all over herself that of COURSE that was not why...ha ha...Little Jo Jo Booth agreed to don the Santa suit and the rest is history!
I wished I had a video of his entrance...he strutted the whole way...let me tell you, it was hilarious!

I begged Saige to go and sit on Santa's lap with Bodie...I was trying to make her do a scared face and she didn't quite nail it...but, Bodie's face is priceless...he didn't cry, but he sure didn't like Santa either!! What a great memory!

HO HO HO! I mean HA HA HA! Ol' Santa Jo looks pretty good. Good looking suit. Guess it was hard for Saige to look scared but it sure was easy for little Bodie. Great Picture.
