A yearly Santa tradition has begun


If you follow me on Instagram then you will have already seen this picture, but if not, I really couldn’t have asked for a better Bad Santa picture. Vivian is the happiest baby around and couldn’t care less about a bearded man in velvet holding her.  But Austin, TERRIFIED.  I am not sure what Santa did to make him so scared, but something must have happened.  😉  This picture is kinds of epic and I can’t wait to show it to Austin’s future wife.  And I am excited for the prospect for future Santa pictures with these two… until Austin is old enough to run away without us being able to catch him.

Anyhow, just wanted to take this time to say HAPPY HOLIDAYS to you all!  Thank you so much for following along in this journey of mine for the past almost 5 years here, OMG!  You’ve been with me through just after my wedding, the birth of two children and all of the outfits and happenings in between.  Life right now for me is chaotic, yet beautiful.  This blog is forever my place to get away and share my thoughts and document our lives.  It is my happy place to turn to my blog when the kids are asleep and I have a few quiet moments to myself.  I usually type late at night and lately it’s been next to the twinkling Christmas tree full of presents underneath.  I am blessed to have a wonderful husband and two beautiful children (and grandparents staying with us too) to share this wonderful life with this holiday season.

    Aw, poor little guy! We haven’t taken our little one to meet Santa yet, but I have a feeling she would probably be terrified too.

    There is just something about that guy with the big white beard that scares kids senseless. Even if he is holly jolly. Sofia wasn’t too happy with him this year either. Oh, well…many more years to go with him! Maybe our kids will grow used to his presence.
