I still remember when I was a little girl one of our family traditions was visiting Santa, telling him what I would like for Christmas and then sitting on his lap for our yearly photo! This is something that we do each year with our Party of 5 as well!
The kids love it…well once they get over their fear of the big fella, which most kids have around the age of 1-3! Our two eldest children love visiting Santa, but this year our youngest who is almost 2 didn’t want a bar to do with him! She’s all talk at home when she sees pictures of him or sees him on the television, but when it came to the crunch, she kept saying “no Santa mummy, no!” and was literally shaking like a leaf! Bailey and Sienna had deep and meaningfuls with him though and there were plenty of high 5s going around! Even Mia managed a super fast high 5 after saying “no 5 Santa mummy!” lol!
Since becoming parents in 2006, this year marked our 7th year of visiting Santa and getting our annual Santa photo…..
Looking at these adorable photos makes me all warm and fuzzy and a great memory of the progression to building our beautiful family! I just love them! Now to create a masterpiece on how I will display them (I’ll keep you posted with that one). My aim is to keep this tradition going for as long as the kids allow it…my cut off will be 18 lol…if they are lucky lol!
Each year our current photo is placed in this frame that I bought quite a few years ago! It’s a great frame that can be used for many different occasions! All you do is fill the sides with whatever you want:)
Keep an eye out for my next Christmas tradition blog post on the Kid’s Christmas clothes…all thanks to their Nanny:)
