The Santa Photo...

Paul and I realised last night that we hadn't taken the kids to see Santa yet!! So this morning we made it our mission and off to our local David Jones we went. Well, it started off ok.... there wasn't a huge line like we thought and the kids were all so well behaved while we waited.... then it was our turn to see Santa.... WHAT A DRAMA!! Madi took one look at Santa and started to scream and Riley didn't want to go anywhere near him! LOL! Ayden was the only one eager to have a chat and happily sat on Santa's knee and put his order in for Christmas (a Transformer of course!). So, as always I ended up in the photo and it took lots of squeeky balls, blowing bubbles and Paul dancing around like a looney behind the camera to finally get all the crying to stop and get a decent photo!! I'm the one that ended up looking dopey!!! LOL!! Ahhh well.... another year's Santa pic done... hopefully next year we'll manage to get a photo without me in it!!

Only 4 more sleeps to go!!! Merry Christmas everyone!!

  2. Hi there

    Just popping over to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a fun and safe New Year as well.

    Santa photos are not easy in this house either. My daughter Amanda is 7 and 1/2 and has only sat on Santa's knee once in her whole life. She is scared of being too close to him for some unknown reason. She prefers to watch him from afar.

    Your photo looks fine. The kids are smiling and I love how they are all colour co ordinated in red, white and blue clothes. Madi's spotty dress is too cute.

    I loved seeing your photos of the boys "cleaning" efforts. How adorable and well done to them for trying.

    Well done to Madi too for starting to walk. She looks very confident already. Isn't she clever.

    Thanks for the feedback on the Bee movie. Amanda wants to see that during the school holidays and I wondered how it was.

    Anyway I'd best get back to the house work. Take care and have a fantastic Christmas.

    I've recently updated my blog on Scrapboxx if your interested in reading our news. Bye for now, love from Susan (smiles1965) at Scrapboxx
