Wordless Wednesday: The Santa Photo 2010

On Saturday we drove out to Kraynak’s to see their Christmasland tree display.
While we were there we took Adaline to see Santa Claus.

First here she is last year with the Santa at the Beaver Valley Mall, she was just over 4 months old:

Now here she is this year with Kraynak’s Santa
at just over 16 months old:

She was fine with Santa from afar until I tried to hand her over to him. Check out the thumbnails for the progression of torture.

Post Santa trauma. Not letting go of Mommy.

Post Santa bottle and nap. Phew, what a long day 😉

And lastly, proof-positive that I’ve probably scarred her for life.
Later in the day once we got home…

Yes. She’s licking the ornaments on the tree.

Lest you think that this was a one time mistake by a rookie mom you need to see how I purposely tortured my daughter with Santa yet one more time only 1 week later:

  1. That first Santa is fantastic! Wow. He looks so real.

    You daughter is adorable, even when she is freaking out. And especially when she is tasting the ornaments.

    Kids are so weird.


    • Isn’t he though? He’s such a super sweet old man…I think he might be the real Santa! I’d still like to take her up to the mall this year because I think he’ll be there again. But knowing that she’ll freak out like that would kinda make me a mean mom to do it to her again on purpose. Hmm…

      Thank you! Naturally I think she’s the cutest thing ever and I found it funny when she was screaming to save her life (I’m truly messed up!). I never feed the poor girl, so ornaments must be the perfect snack 😉

      Kids are very weird. Then again I’m not so normal myself!


  2. Awesome!! I would not dare taking a picture of my tree! My kids have pretty much destroyed it 😦

    Yours looks great! I hope that ornament tasted good!


    • I’m surprised she hasn’t torn it apart but she almost studies it in a way, which is strange considering she practically rips my mom’s ears off trying to get to her earrings.

      I’m guessing the ornament was delightful…she kept going back for more!


  3. Oh! She is the cutest little thing. Love the pictures leading up to it. Funny as can be : ) I love pigtails on little girls. It is my favorite.


    • Why, thank you 🙂 I find her to be terribly adorable. Poor kid, I surely traumatized her…at least there are pictures 😉 I love pigtails too. Every now and then I try to put some in my hair…but it just isn’t the same (and is maybe a little creepy, haha)


  4. Such a traumatic day…(smile). And the ornaments do look good enough to eat! I’m surprised that kids don’t try to climb the tree too!


  5. Hahahahahaha!!! I love the picture of her licking the ornament. What darling pajamas! She is so adorable.


    • Yeah, I suppose most mom’s would run to get the ornament out of the kids mouth…I ran for my camera 😉 I got those cute jammies at the Children’s Place on clearance last year. She is a cutie, thanks!


  6. Your daughter is adorable and you look cute too with the picture with Santa!
    Hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas.


  7. Aw poor baby! She did not like that Santa! Lol


    • No she didn’t! And I’m so terrible that I took her to the mall today to get her photo taken with another Santa (the one in the first picture who is obviously the real Santa), so that her cousin could get his photo taken too. I’m a terribly mean mama!
      (new Santa photo coming up this Wednesday)


  8. She is SO cute. I love that last shot of her licking the ornaments, lol. With your permission, I would love to use it in a Christmas video I am putting together over at my blog.

    See here for info:

    Would it be OK to use? You would receive FULL credit, of course.
