Yes, me again. Turns out I'm not so much "dedicated to blogging" as I am "jacked up on the 20 ounce bottle of Mountain Dew Voltage I drank well into the afternoon which ensures I will not be falling asleep no matter how tired my little, pea brain is right now" so I thought I'd play along for the first time with Candid Carrie's Phriday Photo Phiesta. (I can't tell if Carrie does it with "PH" or "F" and I'm a bit bleary eyed, so I'm opting for the Ph 'cause that's how I feel like rolling.) I have seen folks doing the FFF/PhPhPh before (as a matter of fact, I was just over admiring Jennifer's latest entry which is quite the amazing Christmas card!) and as I'm still awake, it seems like as good a time as any to join in the fun!
Anyhow, fresh off my belated success with the Fantabulous photo-related Christmas gift creation, here is a retrospective of Kiddo with Santa over the years............ Since I am a total Christmas nut, one of my favorite things each December is taking Kiddo, all bedecked in her holiday duds, to see the Man in Red. Enjoy!
Her first visit to Santa, age 6 months, in an outfit that one of my oldest (as in since high school, not age-wise) friends and her wife gave us. Loved the outfit, I mean, seriously, it had a velvet beret, people!!
The following December, by which point I'd scouted out all the area mall Santas and decided this one was the best of the lot (Kiddo age 18 months in case you didn't do the math):
Age 2 and a half, the bow started on top of her head but slid off to the side. It sort of looked on purpose, so I let it go. She wouldn't look at me, the mommy frantically waving as I jumped about with the camera glued to my face, because talking to Santa was much more important. They had a lengthy conversation, which I believe entailed discussing a lot of points Kiddo had picked up watching and rewatching the Wiggles Christmas DVD she wore out that year:
Age 3 and a half and looking at the camera once more:
Last year, age 4 and a half:
And for this year's picture, well you can see one of the photos from this year's session down below in my SITSmas post (it isn't the exact one we used on our card, but it's still cute which is why I put it up here)... and on that note, TGIF and I'm off to bed!
