As you might remember, our little photo opportunity with the Sugar Plum Fairy last weekend did not go so well, so I didn’t have high hopes for this visit, but I wanted to at least try!!
As we approached the “North Pole”, Sarah was excited….she saw all the lights and Christmas trees and was pointing in every direction. Of course I had the camera in hand and as soon as we were in line, I was stopped by one of the “elves” running Santa’s village!! She ever so politely asked me to put my camera away. I said, “Don’t worry, I won’t use it when we get up there, I just wanted to get some candid shots along the way, and I will buy the package that you are selling” She said it didn’t matter….you are not allowed to use them at all!! Doesn’t she know I need more than one stinkin picture??
Just getting over the flu, pale and pasty and I had to get in the picture with her!! It was the only thing I could do to get her anywhere near “The Scary Man”….she also would not sit next to him, so I had to keep her on the opposite side. Every once in a while, she would peak over at him and then start crying again. This was the only photo they took that she was not crying and had somewhat of a smile on her face. There was only one tiny problem…..I looked absoultely horrible. As soon as I saw it on the girls computer screen, I was going to ask them try again, but I could already see the glares I was getting from the people standing in line so I just bought it anyway. All weekend I have been trying to figure out how I could post this without me and it was virtually impossible…..so I got a little creative.
Do you like my new look?
I bet you never thought to do this with your Christmas onraments!!!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!
