And The Winner Is...



Hair Up won the vote! Thank you everyone that participated in the vote.
I took the kids last night to have pictures made with Santa. The kids did great and of course I had a really hard time deciding which pictures to get...so I got one of each pose :) Madeline did not like Santa at all (as to be expected) As soon as she saw him, she jumped into my arms, buried her face in me, and started crying telling Santa to go away. Jackson loved Santa. He went right to him, gave him a hug, and sat in his lap and told him what he wanted for Christmas. (so cute!) Madeline raised her head to see her bubba sitting in Santa's lap and she got so upset. Through tears she said "No, not my bubba, I want my bubba"

The photographer was very clever in how to sneak Santa in the room for the picture. I took the kids out, Santa snuck in and hid behind the screen. Once hidden, I brought the kids back in the room, positioned them and just as the picture was going to be taken, Santa came out and stood behind the kids. Madeline had no clue that he was there and the picture was great!
Wow...so mission accomplished.
Does anyone have an Santa memorable Santa stories?

There are such little models, they love to be camera hogs! If you got any pics with the kids with Santa or anywhere in the same air space, you did better than me! Allie and Zach were both so afraid of him we have no pics of them at any Christmas events, we were ask to get out of line once at the mall because they were scaring the rest of the kids! I can't wait to get a Christmas card, I look so forward to that! I hope your having a good day, we're passing around germs! I've got to show you some of the pics of Madie from the wedding she's so adorable! Tasha

What a precious post. Brought tears to my eyes and the kids look precious in their t-shirts. :)

I do, don't have kids yet but have one from myself when I was a little kid...
My sister and I were very young prob Jack and Madeline's ages and when mom took us to see Santa Ashleigh (the younger) did exactly what Madeline did but I had to be held back in order not to skip all the other kids and rush to Santa!!
U know its ridiculous to expect kids to wait in line and wait their turn when the big guy is sitting right there and they have to be tortured watching the other kids go!!
