    Awww so cute Cat! We're not getting photos this year Abby will NOT sit or stand or even go near Santa this year I was hoping one of my friends would dress up like santa for us, but he's said no . We'll probably end up with photos on Christmas daywith the whole family dressed in their santa shirts though so it's all good!
    Happy to take all constructive Critique, please don't rework or edit my photos. Thanks!

    Those eyes look like she's pleading "Mummy please don't leave me with this weird guy!"

    Mine are too old for Santa now, but I remember when my youngest daughter was 4, taking her to see Santa who duly asked her what she would like for Christmas.
    She stared back at him with her angelic blue eyes and calmly told him she'd like a Death Star please.

    He looked at me aghast, but I just shrugged my shoulders and said "Well, you did ask!"

    Ahhh, it's the classic thing of two and three year olds being petrified of Santa.

    I worked as a Santa photographer in 2007 and 2008, and it was always 2 and 3 year olds that would not have a bar of it. Any younger and they are fine, and once they hit four or five, they're raving about seeing Santa.

    ...and not just of Santa, either. I spent a good deal of time comforting a 3-y-o lad at a recent 1st birthday party when the Cookie Monster and Elmo turned up. He and a 2-y-o were petrified beyond belief. Didn't help when CM was being all touchy-feely and in the face of these children who were obviously scared.

    Some stalk, some chase and some pursue... but I hunt.

    Hehehehehe I'm a sad man I know. But it was fun walking my 60kg great Dane "Gus"
    through the shopping center on a Sunday during open hours

    And yes he did bark once, and yes it echoed through the whole center!!!!!



    BTW I didn't take the shot (it was taken by one of those Canon cameras i've heard about )

    Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and Safe Holidays
