Seriously, I was so excited about this.....it was a little ridiculous. I was like a little kid! Elliott had no idea what was going on, but I didn't care. This is our new tradition. Period. :)
I have no memories of taking pictures with Santa as a child, and it's just something that I decided we are going to do with our kids! I think it's fun, and to be able to look back at these pictures every year will bring back such happy memories. So, consider this year one of our new tradition!!
My sweet little bug and Santa :) This makes me happy! She was totally unimpressed (as usual), but at least she wasn't screaming (although I find screaming-baby-with-Santa photos to be adorable)! Santa was even more perfect than I had imagined! He was so super sweet! He talked quietly to Ellie until she seemed comfortable with him, then I sat her on his lap, and he held onto her little hand the whole time! I think the picture that they are going to print for us will be of the two of them looking at each other.....so sweet!!
This was just another part of our fun family day last week, and this is a photo that we will bring out and reminisce over every year at this time.
