Poor Excuses For Santa Photos

Posted in Buggle Bite, Motherhood, Parenting at 9:28 pm by Momma

I promised to unveil Aidan’s Santa photo from our trip south when we were actually in the month that Christmas was in, since it is now December I will hold true to my promise.

Let me Go

I am less than pleased with this photo. The idiots at the mall store weren’t even paying any attention to him or their job. I sat Aidan on Santa’s lap and he was happy-ish at the beginning. Okay, he wasn’t crying! And the camera guy was chatting up the elf! I think it went something like, “Hey, baby what nice pointy shoes you have…” Dork! After I gently reminded him that he was working, he got back behind the camera to snap this gem of a picture. Take a gander at his high water style pants and pamper hanging out between his pants and shirt. He was prim and proper when I handed him over! And don’t even get me started with the coloring of the photo…I have no idea what the heck is going on there?! I tried to give it a little boost in photoshop, but I’m pretty sure it’s beyond help! Oh yeah, all this greatness for the bargain price of $22 for two 5×7’s! ๐Ÿ™„

Last weekend I took Aidan to the Little Angels Christmas Bazaar here in town to try the whole “Santa” thing again. This time was much better They had the Santa station in a private room, that was surprisingly well decorated. Aidan got to run around a bit first and chit chat with Santa before they took over ten pictures! I got the pleasure of sitting in on some of them. Lucky Mommy! Aidan got to play with Santa’s jingle bells, which of course was a big hit–after all he is a Kindermusik prodigy! ๐Ÿ˜› They charged five bucks just to sit with Santa (which I didn’t know at the time, and it just so happened that I had cash that day!) then the photos had to be ordered separately at the photo store. I stopped by today and ordered six 4×6’s for a buck-eighty-three!

As you can see I am all giggles in this picture and if you look closely at my hand you can tell I am totally trying to tickle a smile out of my stoic toddler! Ho Ho Ho!

Thatโ€™s The Spirit
