The Santa Photo

My sweet daughter walked right up to Santa, waved at him and said, "Ho Ho Ho!" She accepted his offering of a candy cane, and then when it was time to sit in his lap, she grabbed onto Mommy with all her might, and started to cry. I wasn't about to force her to sit with him, so we compromised and took this photo with him together. I think it turned out rather well, and I'm sure the day will come all too soon when Sweetpea doesn't want her Mommy with her, so I'm enjoying this while I can! This Santa was outdoors at a local festival, so you can't see Sweetpea's adorable sweater her GaSue knit for her. Here is a better view:
She gives the most wonderfully enthusiastic kisses! Here's a closeup of that sweater...Doesn't it look like Santa's sleigh is taking off from my head?
One last photo before I go, I'm a sucker for pictures of Sweetpea with big T. She hadn't seen him for a few weeks and wanted to be his shadow all weekend. Don't mind me while I melt into a puddle of Mommy mush!

Wishing you all a peaceful, joyous holiday and many blessings in the coming year!

I just love the picture of you and Sweetpea. I'm with you, kids grow up so fast and before you know it they don't "need" you anymore!

Merry Christmas!
