New Header Picture

December 1972~my son, Jim only 16 months old. He obviously didn't think too much of Santa. He didn't visit with Santa again for several years and that was a Santa that visited the hospital's day care center in 1975. The only photo of that visit is a very poor snapshot. What's comical about this picture is you can tell exactly where I was standing, while he was on Santa's lap. Once they snapped the picture, I grabbed him up and snuggled him so he wouldn't cry anymore. I have to admit, this Santa looked pretty scary.

don't you just love these to look back upon? we have our own set of kids terrified being in Santa's lap. when my son was 9 months old, I told them "get the camera ready, I'm putting him on Santa's lap and you got to take the picture immediately". they did, good thing because once he turned around, you know the rest of that story.

love the theme you are doing with header pictures; your daughter next?

I agree with a couple of other commenters--looks to me like Santa has had a little too much holiday "cheer!" LOL

Adorable Linda. I was always terrified of Santa Claus myself when I was a child.

He was a cutie. Most photo's of young children with Santa crack me up. The parents love them and the kids hate it. I never thought he was scary looking but my kids did. LOL.
Hugs, Joyce

That is a sweet picture but I instantly thought that santa was either very tired of seeing children or had tipped a little to much rum....I mean, eggnog!!!
