Well, he is a mean one.
Ashley Bohl shared a video on Instagram of her two children sitting in a large chair in front of a decorated Christmas tree in Atco, N.J., where the kids — who were dressed in matching pajamas — were getting their pictures taken by a photographer.
During the photo session, a prankster dressed as the Grinch comes out from behind the tree to pose with the youngsters.
However, the giant green guest — who was wearing an uncharacteristic “I (heart) Christmas” sweater — seemed too much for the two to handle, and Bohl's son takes off running and crying, followed close behind by his sister.
According to Bohl, her kids had actually been looking forward to meeting the Grinch.
“My kids couldn't wait to meet the Grinch this weekend! I'd say it went well,” the mom joked in her caption on Instagram.
Fortunately, all seemed to have ended well. Bohl posted an update on Instagram showing a smiling, happy family posing with a silly Grinch behind them.
