Visiting Santa 2015

So our visit to Santa this year went pretty much how I expected…

When Santa came into the room Jude wasn’t very impressed. He listened to the story and watched some other kids sit on his lap. But when it was his turn and Brandon took him over to sit on Santa’s lap he tried to climb over Brandon. Even with the offer of a high five (his favorite thing ever)!

So we plopped him down and snapped a few screaming photos (how can you not?!?!).

And then BTR swooped in and saved him! Once Brandon had him he was a happy camper so we snapped a few of all of us with Santa!

I think he was high-fiving in this picture too, but I love how we are all smiling!

Big thanks to Layne at Auman Photography for having this awesome Santa session at a friend’s house! It’s so much more relaxed than going to the mall (and costs just about the same) and Jude loved the cookies and milk! Plus we get to have some family photos taken, which I then used for our Christmas card!

  • Your family pictures with Santa turned out great! No one would guess he was bawling just moments before lol.

    • How he switches from angry to happy that quick, I’ll never know! I’m super happy with the family photos!

  • Desiree @ Macke Monologues

    Poor Jude! His screaming face is priceless and classic. How awesome to do this at a friend’s! Genius idea.

    • He was NOT having it! And I love how this photographer does it at a friend’s house, it’s so much more relaxed!

  • Jessica

    Cutest ever!! I love when the kids cry. Is that bad? It’s so cute. We always get in the Santa picture with the kids. Ha ha. It’s the only way Cam would take it in the past.

    • I not-so-secretly love screaming Santa pictures! So I’m happy we got a happy and a sad picture!

  • This is great! How a kid can go from scared-out-of-his-mind screaming to smiling in 30 seconds flat is hilarious to me! And what a cute family picture! P.S. I love your pink sweater!

    • His emotions switch so quick, it’s crazy! I love that sweater, I have it in blue too because it’s so comfy!
