Happy Santa Photo link up day! I originally thought that I wasn't going to be able to participate today since we had no plans to see Santa before this coming weekend since Seth and I had to work all weekend last weekend but this was actually the second Santa meeting of the season (first meeting coming soon)!
This past weekend when Seth and I were working all weekend, we had scheduled cousin Santa pictures. It's become a yearly thing and the kids all wear pajamas and we head to the mall to get their picture taken with Santa. This year, since Seth and I couldn't go, I asked Seth's mom, who was watching Mason all weekend, to take him for us and she gladly said yes. I won't lie, I was a little worried and felt bad about what I was sending her to do as last year... didn't go so well.
But this year? She must have the magic touch because look at this gem that we got!
How is this possible?! When they sent me a copy of this picture I nearly fell out of my chair and wondered whose child they found to take a picture of because last year he cried his eyes out on more than one occasion. It was a holiday miracle!
And the cousin picture. SO SO cute! And of course, one of them has to be crying :) Mason graduated from the crier and now the torch has been passed on to Lilah (who actually liked Santa last year). Mason looks a little uneasy (given his hand gestures), however, he is still smiling and no tears and standing on his own, next to Santa!
I consider this a total win!
And just for fun... here's a look back at last year. When we visited Santa four times... yes, FOUR times, and Mason hated... them all!
