Pictures with Santa

This morning I was the photographer for the Pleasanton 3rd ward's primary activity..."Pictures with Santa." It was hosted at my cute aunt Christy and uncle Alan's house (he's the bishop). I took my good photo-friend Lisa Long with me (who brought the awesome lighting equipment--thank you!) And I just had to post some of these pictures.

Why does sitting on Santa's lap make so many kids cry?!?

They were absolutely terrified!

Hey, I wouldn't want to sit on his lap either!

P.S. Ben's Christmas party looked like fun. The same thing happened with us at the conference in South Africa. We had a few dinner parties with open bars and everyone (but us) took full advantage. At least you get to laugh at the drunk people. There was one girl that even ran into the sliding glass door! It was hilarious!

I have wondered the same thing about kids and Santa. My nephews are all the same way. A girl I went to high school with has a little boy that is rather tough. He sat on Santa's lap and he didn't cry. He was quite uncomfortable and VERY nervous, but he shed zero tears. I don't understand...

He is a scary looking Santa!!!!!!! He should be smiling under his beard. The kids are cute though. Only 5 more days...!
