The Babies' First Photo with Santa!

I wanted to get the babies out of the house for a little bit today, and since I had a coupon for World Market (one of my favorite stores!) I decided to bundle them all up for an afternoon of shopping with Mommy:) As soon as I got to the Cascade Village Shopping Center I realized they were having their seasonal "Photos with Santa" and on a whim decided to take a chance and see how the babies would do! Thankfully, it happened to be a slow afternoon for Santa (we were the only ones there!) so I was able to get the babies out of the stroller/off my back without feeling rushed, and Santa was super friendly and instantly won Oliver's affection by bringing over a giant Christmas Pooh Bear! Santa was a little worried that the babies would freak out if I wasn't in the picture and was also concerned he wouldn't be able to safely hold all three on his lap so I joined in the holiday cheer...and also had my picture taken with Santa (I think it's been over 20 years since that has happened!) I was totally expecting one (or all) of the babies to cry and throw a fit, but they did great and seemed to really enjoy Santa and his toys! Or maybe it was the fact that the lady who worked there kept feeding them french fries... :)


  1. What a cute picture! I'm glad the babies were so good!
