You First Leah

.
It's been interesting to watch Jolie discover that little sisters, while frequently aggravating, are great to have around because they make for excellent lab rats.

Maybe that's why our Leah is so daring. She seems to accept her role - To walk through the fields of life before Jolie, just to make sure there aren't any land mines.

Today, another example.
.





Needless to say, Jolie opted out.

Good work Leah.

Those might be the best pictures with Santa ever! Look ate her peeking around the corner!!

And can I just say I would be scared of that Santa too! Maybe I am spoiled because our ward has the best Santa ever. The man honestly really looks like Santa.

Nice capture of the peeking around the corner--that is hard to get on film. And I am glad to hear that Jolie is using her resources wisely.

All time favorite Santa pictures. Ever. Ever. Ever. THis one made me laugh out loud.

Very cute pictures. I love the sequence.

I think most little kids are creeped out by sitting on a strange, hairy old man's lap. Can't say I blame them.

Hilarious! Love the photography!

It's okay Leah, he'll bring you even better presents than your sister, because you attempted to see him!
(I say this because I have always been the "lab rat")

Jolie - ya big chicken!

I laugh every time I come to your blog. I love it! I always have to check if there is another funny story from the Erb family. You're a fantastic writer, Katie. Your blog is a must read.

And Santa came knocking on their door just a couple of days later.

Little does she know he'll be creeping into her home in just a few nights.
