pictures with Santa

2010:  I’ll stand here but I WON’T sit next to him.

2009:  You can’t tell but Eli someone is getting ready to scream.

Eli actually sat on his lap!!!!

2008:  Eli’s appearance cracks me up in this one. 

Xmas 2008

2007:  Best. Picture.  Ever.

2007 Xmas

2006:  Is it just me, or does Santa look a little TOO happy?

We did the pictures somewhere different this year and I can see a huge difference in quality.  However, they are not any better at getting an uncooperative child to cooperate than the elves at the mall. 

Hope you have enjoyed this little trip down Santa lane….
