Meeting Santa

by jessicaturner on December 13, 2008

Today, Elias’s little school had a breakfast with Santa. Matthew and I totally thought the Santa wasn’t going to be very good, but we were mistaken. He was quite possibly the best Santa ever. Real beard. Amazing suit. Kind personality. He was lovely.

Here is the traditional shot.

Then, I said, “would you mind if we turned him toward you, Santa?” And THESE are the amazing shots. Check out Elias grabbing Santa’s beard. Nice.


I have been working really hard on my December Daily album this weekend. I am caught up through Friday – yea! I am so pleased with it. Can’t wait to share it with you all on Monday – as well as announce the first giveaway winners. I have the packages all boxed and ready to ship.

Is it weird I have tears in my eyes over a little boy I’ve never met?!?! Those photos are AMAZING! He is just the sweetest little stinker ever.

too cute pics.
The only Xyron I have is the little “X” sticker machine.
Should I get the 510 or the bigger 9″ or 8 1/2″ machine if I can only get one? Or is it a case of wasting the adhesive that is put through the machines? I don’t know how expensive the adhesive rolls are. Any suggestions for my confusion is appreciated.

Oh I just love the shots where he is looking at Santa. I was hoping for those with my 13 month old this year, but instead we got lots of tears. Precious pictures!
