Poor Poppy will always wonder why she's not in this picture... Imagine her and I, trying to ease our way onto the corner of this sofa... staying as far away from Santa as humanly possible. We started off near Santa, but quickly realized Mrs. Claus might be a better bet. Nope. She was screaming bloody murder, and someone told me I was traumatizing her. Or the exact words might have been 'You don't want to scar her for life'. Thank you - well meaning stranger. Needless to say, Soren's flying solo this year, and I'm pretty sure Poppy has recovered from the traumatic event.
