so her mom can snap a picture.
*Brandon* "Yeah, kiddo?..."
*Harry* "Do you think Santa will bring me all the stuff on my Christmas list?..."
on Christmas morning."
*Daniel* "That's right! I forgot that's how we first met them, the boys
The little girl nods and smiles. Harry does not waste any time
and gets down to business with his Christmas list.
want wants on the the top of the list more..."
man is ready to take the picture.
*Harry* "Yes I did! And I showed him my list..."
Next in line is Parker, he squirms a little as mom puts him
down in some strange man's lap.
*Parker screams* "No! NO!....NOOOOO!...."
As all that is going on, Luke and Laura show
up with Phoenix.
*Phoenix* "Bay-by ck-i-ying..."
*Luke* "Yeah....I sure hope you don't do that..."
*Phoenix* "I not ck-i-ying..."
Laura meanwhile is busy with the sales girl.
*Sales girl* "Perfect!...Will you be paying by cash or card?"
*Pete* "Jennifer! Hey how's my favorite detective doing?..."
*Jennifer* "I'm good....how are you?..."
As mom talks to her fellow police officer. Adrianna turns
quickly and whisperers to her sister Kelly.
*Kelly turns her head* "What?! Nu-uh..."
*Adrianna whispers* "Yes huh...."
Kelly waits a beat for him to turn then gasps
when she catches a glimpse.
*Kelly* "Ohmygawd! He does!!..."
*Adrianna whispers* "Shhhhh! Keep your voice down!...Ya dork!"
The girls giggle and snicker, all the while Luke and Laura do
not notice a thing. They are both busy talking to each other. Phoenix looks down and points at the the water bottle.
*Luke* "I thought we were gonna wait on that till he's done with Santa?..."
*Laura* "He's thirsty..."
*Luke* "Last thing we need is him having an accident on Santa's lap. I told you,
we should have just left the pull up diaper on him"
*Phoenix* "Mama!! Wha-wa!..."
him no now he'll throw a fit."
As Luke and Laura try to juggle Phoenix's potty training between everything else. Jennifer says goodbye to Pete.
*Pete* "Merry Christmas, I'll see ya round..."
Pete walks away and she turns to her daughters to see
what all the snickering was about.
So the girls fill in mom on what they were giggling about.
At the front desk the sales girl welcomes
are new family to Santa's Village.
*Malcolm* "Hi...We got two little ones eager to see Santa..."
The girl tells Malcolm what picture packages he can choose from then he pays. Marissa meanwhile has to remind Julian to behave.
*Julian* "But I'm looking at the tiny Christmas trees Mama!"
The family of four gets in line behind Luke and Laura,
who have managed to stay accident free so far!
*Julian in a playful gruffy voice* "No one can pass on the the bridge to Santa,
unless they pay the troll!"
Then he laughs...Ha ha ha!
*Janessa* "That's not nice Julian!..."
*Malcolm* "Maybe this little troll will let us pass if we
give him some candy..."
Julian looks up at his dad.
Malcolm pulls to candy canes out of his pocket...
*Malcolm* "I got one for you and one for your sister...So you ready to
stand in line with the rest of us?"
While all this is going on, Chloe and Daniel have finished their turn, allowing the next in line for theirs. Adrianna and Kelly sit with Santa to take their pics, while mom watches from the sidelines.
As Chloe and Daniel walk their way around they spot Luke and Laura. Everyone greets each other with warm hugs and handshakes.
It's been a while since they have all seen each other, Laura is closer to Chloe so they talk more often.
She pulls back and looks at Laura.
*Chloe* "My you have grown so much since the last time I saw you."
*Laura* "Yeah, I'm 32 weeks now, he's getting pretty crowed in there now."
Chloe reaches out and touches her belly gently...
on a name finally?"
*Laura smiles* "Yes we did...but we're keeping it a secret for now."
*Chloe* "Oh! So you'll announce it after he's born then?"
kids are so happy you came along."
*Malcolm* "Me too, Baby..."
Janessa and Julian decide to have a little playful
sword fight with their candy canes. Until Mom
and Dad decide to break it up.
*Laura squints in a little pain* "Yeah, just my back is getting tired, and he
keeps stretching his feet into my back."
*Luke* "You wanna go sit down while I finish up with Phoenix?..."
*Laura* "No, I wanted to get some video of him Santa's lap."
*Luke* "You sure?..."
*Laura smiles* "As long as I get a foot rub from you tonight, I'll be fine."
*Luke smiles* "Is that right?...Of course, Babe."
*Julian* "Do you think if I ask Santa for a real motorcycle for Christmas,
he'll get me one?"
*Malcolm laughs* "Why do you wanna have a real motorcycle?!"
*Julian* "So I can bring it to your motorcycle shop and work on it." *Malcolm* "Well first off you're not old enough for a real one, so Santa is not gonna bring you one. And second, once you get a little older you can come with me to the garage sometimes. How does that sound?..."
*Julian smiles* "Okay!"
Finally! Up next is Phoenix, he rears back away from Santa
as Luke tries to set him down in his lap.
*Luke* "Phoenix, it's okay. It's Santa...you gotta sit in his lap so he
can bring you toys for Christmas..."
*Camera man* "Just plop him down, Santa is good with the little
ones he'll get him calm."
Luke does as suggested and sets him down, Santa starts talking and Phoenix listens closely. As Luke is stepping aside
Malcolm makes a comment.
Luke is wearing his Harley Davidson shirt, he stops
and turns in Malcolm's direction.
*Malcolm* "Yeah I hear ya there..."
While Luke starts talking with Malcolm, Phoenix managed
to calm down and take a nice picture with Santa Clause
Malcolm puts his hand out so Luke can shake
it and he properly introduces himself.
*Luke* "Luke Cooper..."
*Malcolm* "I own a body shop, Malcolm's Paint and Body,
so if you ever want to sell it or fix it up.
*Luke* "Okay, yeah I know where that is!...I pass your place on my way to
and from work. I own Vintage Vinyl Records."
*Luke* "Yeah. Hey if you ever wanna swing by on lunch break or something, I'm almost always there. I do need to get some work done on that old bike."
interested just give me a ring."
*Luke* "Sure...Yeah, definitely. I probably won't be able to get into your shop till the summer, though. Our second child is due in February, so I gotta pay that off first."
*Luke* "Thanks, another boy..."
*Malcolm* "Nice!...Hey my Dad is into old albums you got ones like that?"
*Luke* "Yeah I got all kinds I'm open till Christmas Eve if you want to stop by...."
