Aden’s Santa Pictures

Hope you all enjoyed the homemade holiday bread recipe I posted the other day. Luckily I was able to get in some Christmas baking and decorating, despite being under the weather with bronchitis for a big part of the month. But it was so nice to spend time doing festive holiday activities with my family regardless. I have more photos to share on Friday, but I just had to post these two of Aden today! We couldn’t let this year’s holiday season come and go without taking a trip to The Grove to see Santa!

We took two different photos of Aden on Santa’s lap… You tell me which one is more frame-worthy!

At first he thought Santa was slightly crazy…

…But the second time around he got in the Christmas spirit and gave us a big smile!

Santa doesn’t look quite as happy, though, ha! So glad we were able to get some photos printed for the holidays. It’s nice to have these to look back on and reminisce on in the future.

Have you taken the famous Santa pictures with your little ones at Christmas? Would love to see them.

    Aw! These are such awesome photos! This Santa does look unhappy lol, but my little cousin took Santa photos with one of those costume beard Santas and the pic shows him running away! Wish I had the pic to show u, but I don’t have it now :/ ! Still, Have a Happy New Year to your family!

  • Aden is too cute! haha Santa may be just checked out at the moment! Awww you and Adam seem like the best parents! Thank YOU for sharing Tamera!

    Tamera, Aden is just adorable,just cant get over how fast he is growing up. The first picture made me smile,he seems to be looking back at mom and dad for confirmation to say are you sure this guy is OK,lol. But the second picture he is such a big boy sitting for the picture and even smiling,I think he did great, most kids at his age you can not get a great picture with Santa. Aden deserves kudos for being a big boy. I pray your New Year will be filled with much blessings from God to you and your family.

Tamera God’s richest blessing on you and your Family’s life for 2015 and may God’s goodness and mercy follow you all the days of your life. God Bless.
