|Me, my Mom & Santa - 1984|
I was going make some sort of "Bad Santa" pun in the title, but my Mom e-mailed this to me as "Katie Loves Santa" which I thought was pretty hilarious, so there you go. Anyway, the picture is pretty self-explanatory. I was almost 2 years old. My Mom was determined I was getting a picture taken with Santa. I pitched a fit. She got in the picture to try and calm me down. Didn't work. She still paid for the picture. I'm sure she was embarrassed at the time, but it's my favorite Santa picture. I think it's hilarious and if we ever have kids and they take a bad Santa pic, I'm turning it into a Christmas card and sending it out. (No one's ever going to let me have kids, are they? Didn't think so.) Somehow either the scanning or my parents iPhoto has edited this I think because if you see the picture in person my face matches the red in the dress. Fashion conscious at a young age, people.
PS - If you read this, sorry about putting you on the blog, Mom. But it's funny!
