A Family Tradition...



My dad looks like Santa.

So around this time of year he lets his beard grow, dresses up, gets rather jolly and allows children of all ages to sit on his lap stare at him in awe and declare boldly what they would like for Christmas.

He never takes money, he asks that whoever "hires" him donates to a charity or adopts some families for Christmas.

Santa's a giver...

naturally.

Because we have such a great Santa so readily available, we take the utmost advantage. We follow him to one of his Santa gigs and get a free picture.

There has to be some perks if Santa is your dad, right?

2007
Christmas with Caden...


2009
Rigg's first Santa visit... he seems thrilled... if you want to see more, click here.


2010
Last Christmas I captured the cutest shot of all time... if you want to see more, click here... and ignore the whale in the photos...



2011
This year I did get some nice shots... It was difficult, as Santa was talking to the boys the whole time. And Rigg kept putting his fingers in his mouth and all over his face. Ryder was trying to figure out what was going on...Pop, in a big red suit... Weird...





But my favorite is this one... talk about a "real" picture...



Merry Christmas!

You are so blessed to have your very own Santa! ;) I laughed out loud at the last picture! Hilarious! Love the ones of the boys together and the family shots, too. Merry Christmas! :)

So the first picture for this year, Rigg reminds me of Andy's creeper photos in the family pics. And in the last one, dad really looks like the real Santa, and Uncle John and Nana all at the same time.

Your dad is the best looking Santa I think I have ever seen. That is awesome! Merry Christmas to everyone.

Love it!

I agree with Sara about Andy, but I thought he should be in an ELF outfit and do the creepy face! Talk about your watch lists!
