Well, I had Little Miss all decked out for her picture with Santa. She was in her cute holiday outfit and giant head bow- I know they are obnoxious but when worn for photo ops it doesn’t count!
I was apparently in denial as to how this “Santa Photo Shoot” was going to go down. Not two weeks prior we had gone for her 18 month portrait and it was a disaster to say the least! My little social butterfly was suddenly shy, uncooperative and downright rude!
How in the world was I going to make her understand that sitting with a large, bearded stranger, dressed in red velvet was going to be OK? The reindeer gods were smiling upon us that day because when we got to Santa’s workshop he was out for lunch! Super mom to the rescue, I grabbed my camera (I was a Girl Scout, always prepared) and with the help of a few girlfriends, a.k.a. wranglers, we plopped Little Miss right down in Santa’s seat and began snapping away. We danced, we clapped, we did what was needed to get a smile and caused quite the scene. But, the winning Christmas card picture was so worth the humiliation.
So, now I have the cards printed and sitting on my coffee table, along with my address book, pen, and stamps. All I have to do is address them and get them mailed, yet I have been staring at them for about 3 hours now-just sitting there! I hope to have them mailed out before the New Year!
