Why I love this picture





1. Because my boys look so calm and cool even though their sister is screaming beside them.


2. Because Santa has a real beard.


3. And he was nice. Even as my daughter screamed on his lap.


4. Rowdy styled his own hair because he wanted Santa to see that he is a big boy. The fact that he looked like a rooster didn't matter at all to him.


5. When Santa asked Rowdy what he wanted for Christmas, his answer was "gum".


6. And Messy added in "extra spicy gum".


7. Princess is screaming. I know. I am a horrible mother for allowing this to happen, but it makes for great material on her wedding day.


8. And when she has difficult days with her own children.


9. The memory.


10.
Because my kids are in it and they are so freakin cute I could just eat them up.

You gotta have a screaming baby picture with Santa! It's a right of passage! And I love the look on Santa's face. Priceless.

Make sure to get that gum!

I LOVE your Santa picture! It is perfect!!!!! And your kids sound just like mine. Really, they'd be happy with gum for Christmas! Love it!

Your boys remind me of mine because although they look like brothers their faces are so differently shaped - mine are the same way.

And the fact that your daughter is screaming is quite hilarious, I have to say.

And yes, they are all quite cute! :D

Jennifer said...

I love it and hope you use this as your Christmas card. Mine finally went back and sat on Santa's lap (all three boys are teens) and DH was in it as well. I cherish the photo.

Great picture. You are right that it is hilarious because everyone else seems oblivious to the screaming child in the center of the action. It is almost like you photoshopper her in.

Annie said...

I think the picture is really cute no matter is she is screaming.

Stopping from Seven Clown Circus.
