We normally take the boys to at least two different parties that have Santa there.

We haven't really done the mall santa for a few years.

Jen, I am in the same boat with an 11 yr old DD and an 8 yr old DS. I know if she finds out for sure, she will no doubt ruin it for him, even if she doesn't really mean too.
Cheryl- one of the malls here bans photos too (Westfield) and so now most people go to the other mall. I just hate that. We still buy a photo, but I sooo appreciated them letting me take my own pics as well. Santa even did a magic trick! It was really nice. He got my 11 yr old to sit on his lap- which was a really nice surprise. I think it might have been a Christmas miracle;)

My boys really like to watch Santa on computer. Whoever thought of tracker Satna at NORAD rocks.

We have a Santa suit packed away. It was FIL's. He loved to play Santa :) We don't have anyone to play Santa & at this age D would know his daddy anyway.

I'm not 100% sure J dies / doesn't believe. We keep up the pretense and probably will for quite a few years. My niece made a point of letting us know it is all faked, but that she wouldn't let D know. That surprised me.

My 11 year old sat on Santa's lap, too. It's hilarious to see my great big kid sitting on Santa's lap.
