On the first day...
Early on in the holiday season, we make a trip to see Santa. It's the one tradition that I can't even imagine missing. We've found a great place here in our city to see the jolly elf. The line is never too long, despite Santa taking time to visit with each child in a personal way. And, since Santa's elves aren't selling pictures, they don't mind if you bring your own camera and pose and re-pose as many times as you like.
This year the kids have decided to go in together and ask for a trampoline. When they informed Santa of their choice, he gave them a pretty...um...in-depth explaination of safety and taking turns. He also threw in a lesson on visualizing yourself successfully accomplishing your goals and how important it is to believe in yourself. I think the kids were a little thrown off. They spent most of the time on his lap with confused looks on their faces.
I didn't care if they were confused or not. It gave me time to change the settings on the camera. And really, it's a small price to pay for unlimited poses.
