Two Teens And Their Mama: Oh, Mrs. Claus

Oh, Mrs. Claus


I posted this picture on Instagram on Friday, but for those of you who don't follow me there, I didn't want you to miss out on my favorite Santa photo ever.

Let's discuss it, shall we?  First of all, T was a little over two when this picture was taken. Certainly too old to be so upset about sitting on Mrs. Claus' lap.  Even when I held his hand and moved into the photo, he was having none of it.  I love the look on C's face.  I just imagine he's thinking, "don't worry, he does this all the time, I ignore him". And Santa is clearly hoping it will be over soon.

But Mrs. Claus really steals the show.  To this day I have no idea if she was honestly making that face at him, or hamming it up for the camera.

In any case, T eventually got over his fear of sitting on the laps of strange people in red suits and having his picture taken.  When I phrase it like that, it's a wonder we get any good Santa photos at all!

Last year's photo - and I didn't have to hold his hand!
I'll be spending the weekend baking, wrapping, cleaning, and getting ready for my parents to arrive from Arizona.  Hope everyone has a great weekend!

  1. Amazing to see the two pictures, in the first the boys are so little and then poof, the second one they're all grown up.
    Wishing a very Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family.

  2. Just when I thought I was getting ahead Lana - now today I have to survey about 100 blogs. I'm curious whether other bloggers chose today to post a photo of their children, and write about what they must have been thinking ... or is this just another example of how much we are on the same blogging wavelength?!
    I love both photos! Mrs. Claus upstaged Santa for sure!!
    I hope you have a wonderful holiday with your parents! From the looks of your post yesterday, you look very ready for their arrival! Happy holiday!

  5. I love it, Lana! My phone isn't working well, so I didn't see this on Instagram, but it looks so much like some of the photos I have. We are seeing Santa tomorrow, and I'm hoping my teens will behave as well as yours! ;)

  8. I never see Mrs Claus and she really sets this picture apart from all the usual crying baby with Santa photos! I love it. The second photo looks like the 3 guys are real pals just caught in a photo talking about football or movies. They all look so natural!
