Some insight into our Santa visit last week

20131207-171909.jpg
I’m sure most of you are well into the craziness of the festive season just like us. I think it’s normal at this time of year to have your head spinning isn’t it??? Regardless of the spinning head I still love Christmas and all the good spirited things that come with it.
Last weekend being the start of Advent we put the Christmas tree up and did the inside house decorating. We actually did it on Saturday, I know it was a day early but I had Sunday scheduled as our ‘Santa photo day’.

It has become a bit of a tradition to have our Santa photo at Myer, this usually involves queuing for a little bit as you can see in the picture above (look at that enthusiastic pair!!! hahahaha!). While we were queuing, I tried to get a few snapshots of the kids. It’s not everyday they are as neat and tidy looking as this. Someone decided he wasn’t feeling very photogenic, that’s why you see just the girls posing in most of the pictures. I didn’t want to push my luck with Blake as I didn’t want him feeling all smiled out for the official ‘Santa Photo’, a mother has to play the game sometimes!

Our Turn finally came around to see Santa.
Alani didn’t want to get too close to Santa, so she observed him by peeking from behind my dress.
Blake and Ella happily told Santa there Christmas requests.

Eventually Alani ventured a little closer to Santa and told him from a far that she would like a bike for Christmas.

It was then time for the official snapshot and after about 5 attempts this was our result. I am very proud of our little family, great that we could get everyone smiling and looking in the same direction at the same time.

Considering we had to queue for over an hour (next year I will be taking advantage of the book online in advance option), Zakidlets were extremely well-behaved.
We went and had a bite to eat and finished the day off with a well deserved ice-cream. Yum!!!

  2. Gorgeous family photo – I wish we’d thought of including the parents when our kids were little! Love the girls’ dresses, they are very special!

      Thanks Janet. It’s funny I never liked the idea of being in the photo but now as I look back over them, they are something very special to treasure. I got the girls dresses from target last summer. Thanks for stopping by.
      Have a great day!

    That is a lovely photo, well done all of you!!
    I love the book online option what a fantastic idea. We got to the Queen Victoria Building in Sydney and they take your mobile number then text you when it is your turn.
