I posted this picture on Instagram on Friday, but for those of you who don't follow me there, I didn't want you to miss out on my favorite Santa photo ever.
Let's discuss it, shall we? First of all, T was a little over two when this picture was taken. Certainly too old to be so upset about sitting on Mrs. Claus' lap. Even when I held his hand and moved into the photo, he was having none of it. I love the look on C's face. I just imagine he's thinking, "don't worry, he does this all the time, I ignore him". And Santa is clearly hoping it will be over soon.
But Mrs. Claus really steals the show. To this day I have no idea if she was honestly making that face at him, or hamming it up for the camera.
In any case, T eventually got over his fear of sitting on the laps of strange people in red suits and having his picture taken. When I phrase it like that, it's a wonder we get any good Santa photos at all!
