Santa Pics!

Deborah of Pictures Pots and Pens is hosting Family Fotos on Friday. Be sure to visit her and visit other blogs with posts. This was a picture made 10 years ago with a Santa in a pet store. Jonathan, Kelli and Lucy all had their picture made with Santa. That same day Kelli bought a dachshund just like Lucy! She was black and she and Chad named her Dixie.

We haven't taken Cooper to see Santa yet-but I have a feeling he is not going to like him. LOL Maybe we'll get a chance to take him this weekend. I'm anxious to see his reaction!

Here's one when Connor was Cooper's age. You can see he didn't like Santa too much back then!

Thanks for coming by and looking at my old Christmas pics!

Sometimes it looks like we are torturing our kids in those photos. smile
Your angels on your window sill are darling. Merry Christmas.

Those pictures are so funny when the little ones are crying. I bet they are thinking what in the heck are you doing giving me to that?!?

Hi Diane, I have similar photos of my kids crying on Santa's lap! They wanted no part of the jolly old elf! The pictures and visits are definitely for us and not for them!

There's my Conner and he's not happy! Bless his little heart.

It will be interesting to see if Cooper reacts this way. You know, I don't see too many happy ones on Santa's lap.

Thanks for sharing!

Ho! Ho! Ho! I remember being terrified of Santa. My daughter would just jump in his lap from the time she was a tiny thing. My son, no way. That was a good Santa with Connor. He still has a smile on his face with a crying baby on his lap. Good luck with Cooper's visit with Santa!

It will be so much fun, Diane!

Noah has been twice, this year. Once with his mommy and once with big sis Xanti. She had to work the first time. The first visit went very smoothly...the second, not so happily, but it will be a sweet memory, with or without tears.

Your photos are so sweet!


Awww! Cute pics. :o)

LOL! I love how Connor is trying to escape Santa! Oh, that is so wonderful. When my husband was little he was terrified by a clown at his birthday party, and to this day, he can't stand all things clown. He calle them all malevolent clowns. ;-)

That picture of your other babies is so sweet, and I love how that precious little dog has a Santa suit!

I love Christmas! Thanks for shsring these pictures.

Babies do not appreciate Santa. I have some teary-eyed pictures too. I love that little dachshund!

Hi Diane
I haven't done the Xmas dog card this yet. I have 4 fur babies and I think we would need the whole store staff to keep them around Santa!!
Love your pics.

My daughter-in-law is in the hospital in labor! Today might be the big day! We're so excited!

Oh Diane...these pics are so sweet. One of my all-time favorite pictures of my deceased son, Chad, is of him when he was 5 years old and he was inches away from crying in Santa's lap... ;-) Bo

Good evening, Diane. Hope you had a good week. I'm sorry I haven't been around much lately. Work has been terribly busy and I've not felt like myself either. I did post a new painting and sketch.

Hello Diane. We have had a full day visiting some blogging friends in Raleigh. We are here for a few days visiting my son. I might have mentioned it to you already.

I do love Cooper crying in Santa's arms. He is adorable even if he is crying.

Jonathon Kelli and Lucy look so cute with Santa. Nobody's

Thank you for the compliment Diane. I did fix that photo and it is lots better now. All I did was crop it.

Christmas love...Jeanne
