Photos with Santa has always been a tradition in my family.  Waiting in the long lines, planning on what to tell Santa to bring, being excited and a little scared at the same time.  After all, Santa sees everything you do.  He sees you when you're sleeping.  He knows when your awake.  He knows if you've been bad or good!

Tradition has gone on for years.  My oldest sister has a darling photo of her and my brother sitting with Santa back in the late 40's.  This photo is of my nephew's daughter who is now 11 years old.

She did not want to have her photo taken.  She said she was to old.  I for one, think you are NEVER to old to sit on Santa's lap. 

I'm sad because this could be the final picture with Santa for many years.  We don't have any more little kids in our family. 

How old do you think is to old for Santa pictures? 

Guess it will be me sitting with Santa next year if I can't get Trinity to do it.  I'm a BIG Santa fan.

I have to say, my kids stopped years ago. My daughter was so afraid, we never went back after she was a baby. It's funny how one kid can love him, and another be terrified. These are sweet pics. And while she probably feels too old for it now, one day, she'll love these!
