Santa C

 

That's what he was called in my little hometown.  Not sure why he called himself Santa C, but I will tell you he was a very realistic Santa.  I think it may have actually been THE SANTA!!!!  One Christmas Eve I even asked for his signature when he came and left the presents.  I had a paper set out and everything for him to sign.  One of his elves that help him must have forged his name though, because it was not the same signature that was on the picture he had autographed for me a few weeks before that.

Robin looks like she is about to cry.  She is right on the edge of hysteria.  Biting her lip, arms ready to reach out for Mama, tears welling up in her eyes. 

Now notice the next year, or maybe it was two years later, I don't remember.  My hair is way longer, I have on a hideous shirt that says "hustle", and Robin is no where to be found.

ARGH! Now you're making me wish I could get Alexis to sit with Santa for a photo. Those are two GREAT photos! Totally love the "hustle" shirt. Hrm.

Oh, and I'm 95% done shopping. I was totally done, but my husband just called me to drop another gift responsibility into my lap. I'll be done later today.

I love those pictures. Look how you went from a pretty little girl sitting on Santa’s lap to a beautiful young woman still talking about jolly ole Santa. Memories, just another blessing from God.

We're having Christmas with my family tonight and leaving for Colombia tomorrow so I have to be finished. I just don't know that I am. Christmas just snuck up too quickly this year.

Oh Valarie, Santa does look so realistic! Not many of those look like that now...too bad.

Yes I know don't remind me it's one week away!

Wow, he really is a great Santa!

Well... thank goodness the shirt says "hustle" instead of "hustler." Because that would have been BAD. ;)

That Santa makes me believe again!

I'm so jealous of any good pics with Santa and the kids...you remember mine right?!!

What an AWESOME Santa. He just has to be the real deal!!

And y'all were so cute!

We had pictures made with the same Santa and Mrs. Claus for years. Now that we have moved I am so disappointed that we wont get to this year. Oh well, things change.

Hey,
I have a picture of Laura and Ben with Santa C. We had them made probably at the same place you had yours made. I will dig it out and post it on my blog. He really looked great didn't he. Blessings

How sweet....love the "hustle" shirt.

Looks like Santa needed to cut back on his nicotine intake. (please don't tell me he's related to you)
