Ever since Grace was born, we've made our annual visit to visit the jolly old fella. In 2007, her first visit, she was just 9 months...a tiny little thing...and she burst into tears the moment she spotted the big guy. Still such a sweet memory! In 2008, when she was 21 months and had started to love baking with me in the kitchen, we set up a little "Baking with Santa" shoot and it was just perfect for her. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE those photos (see them all HERE). 2009 brought the addition of our sweet baby Hudson!! Look how tiny he was! Grace was 2 1/2 and Hudson was just shy of 6 months. 2009 also brought the introduction of the lollie to our pictures...BEST.PROP.EVER! Check out the sweet pics HERE. We were full of nervous excitement this year. The whole way there I kept wondering how the littles would react...would they cry, would Grace talk to Santa, would they sit on his lap? They did so well! I couldn't believe NO TEARS at all...from either of them!!
So here are this year's pics...2010...Grace 3 1/2 and Hudson almost 18 months. Since we didn't know how they would react to St. Nick, we had him sneak in from behind for the first photo just in case :) Then they each had a turn. First up, big sister Grace! That little hand by her ear is one of her nervous moves ;)
Next up, Hudson! I love how he's checking Santa out in this picture, like "Hmmm...who are you and should I be concerned?"
Okay, I think Santa's alright.
But just hurry up with the picture...I'm still not 100% sure. Full of excitement & wonder!
Just as it should be for little ones everywhere!
Hope you are making memories with your loved ones this December...and every day!
