Calliope and Teddy Thomsen weren't that happy to see Santa.

Santa's job not all roses

Santa's job isn't always a bed or roses.

Sometimes it comes with a little pain, and eventually, friendly persuasion.

Saturday at the North Pole Extravaganza, Santa Claus was willing, but he was a hard sell to Calliope (left) and Teddy Thomsen, children of Barbie and Nate Thomsen.

The children are the grandchildren of Dodie and Gary Derynck.

Once they were off Santa's lap, the kids were fine to enjoy all that the North Pole Extravaganza had to offer.

Santa appeared at the Bethel Fellowship Church to see the kids.
