Santa Photos 2014

I had been looking forward to our Santa photos all week and was really trying to build up the experience for Liam!  He's a new candy cane lover, so the fact that Santa was going to be handing them out like it was his job (which it is), made my little boy plenty excited!  We went back to the same place at Thanksgiving Point as last year, where Conor got to dress up as Santa to make Liam a bit more at ease.  I love this style of Santa photos and the unique poses.  Of course, I had to sneak my bump into this years photos... something to mark this Christmas by!





They also have a "real" Santa, so kids still have the traditional lap to sit on & candy cane reward.  There were no tears this year (yay for my brave little boy), but he was definitely shy & skeptical.  He would barely look up at us, and really his face was saying "I just want to eat my candy, must I keep sitting on this guy?!"  So we snapped a quick pic, the best we could get, and went along our merry way.


Last year, there was a huge snowstorm the night we did our photos, so all the grounds of Thanksgiving Point were just beautiful!  A true wonderland of snow.  We've had ridiculously high temps lately, so a bit of that magic was missing, but we still enjoyed a good reindeer viewing.  Liam has completely embraced much of this new "Christmas world" that we've been reading about in his books, so he's all about reindeer right now!  He wanted to pet them, but of course, they were just out of reach.



We finished the night with a drive through the holiday lights!  Liam "drove" while the Christmas music was blasting!  I just love this time of year and can't wait for all the fun still to come... like our North Pole Express train ride on Saturday!

Ho, ho, ho!

  13. Those are the best Santa photos ever! Such cute poses. Aria would probably flip for reindeer. We just read the wild reindeer, or wild Christmas reindeer or something for her book advent.
