Merry Christmas!!!!

I couldn’t resist an opportunity to take some fun Santa themed pictures, to update the Santa pictures we took 8 years ago.

Christmas Family Pictures with Santa and his helpers


My friend had these giant presents on the parade float we walked in, and I was going to snap some of her kids, so why not dress up my fam to snap a few, too?Santa and his helpers

I’ve already got a Santa costume. And, throw in our cute little temporary pup, since he’s a part of our gang right now. He wasn’t too thrilled about the photo shoot, just like the other boys.

You can’t tell very well, but Simba has on a Christmas tie collar, but he wasn’t too fond of the elf hat, it’s just resting on his head below.

Here we have a little Mommy kissing Santa Claus

Here is a close up of the pup and his holiday get-up, he’s totally over the shoot.

  4. You are lucky that your sons still go along with these types of photo shoots. You may have to adjust your expectations as they go through their teenage years. Merry Christmas!

  5. This is adorable. You have to teach us how you manage to wrangle your family into these shoots! I’m not sure I could convince mine to do it long enough to get any decent shots!
