This past weekend I took my son to Independence Center in Independence, Missouri to have his pictures taken on Santa's lap. The Santa was wonderful, he was the same one they had last year and was great with the kids. The pictures turned out great, Santa was sitting in an overstuffed green chair. The portrait packages are a little expensive. It costs $19.99 for 2 5X7's. The staff that were taking the pictures did not appear that they enjoyed their job and could have been a little more enthusiastic. However, the overall experience was a good one.
