Katie Loves Santa

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!

This is freaking awesome and so are you for putting it up. I think we all have one of these around...only Santa isn't always in the pic. Your mom looks a little fit to be tied...oh the things are parents do for us.

LOVE IT

This is awesome! I think you should still use it as a Christmas card this year (or maybe next year since it's already December 20th). But either way, that would be pretty funny!

Dropping a child into the lap of a bearded man is a mean spirited tradition. (Good thing you're still adorable through the tears!)

This is such an adorable photo! Haha, when I was younger I never wanted to take a photo with Santa - my parents couldn't even get me all the way to him.

Taj Acosta said...

Priceless!! I used to interrogate santa with all my questions like "well how on earth do you get up and down the chimneys?" lol
