Not-Mall Santa 2018

A Re-Run, But Worth It For the Sweaters

Okay, so I know we just did the whole Santa photo post, BUT BUT BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE.

There was a professional photographer at the party and I just got these, and I simply must inflict them upon you. 'Tis the law of the mommyblobs, and I do not dare disobey.


This is just Santa photo PERFECTION, and it only took us 13 years. 


And well, a few extra tries this year too.


Look at that human! And now look at this human for a mind-blowing compare/contrast. We old, kiddos. 


I realized this was Ezra and Ike's first and only time they've gotten solo time with Santa. They made the most of it and asked for a lot of pricey electronics and roughly half the stock  of books at Barnes & Noble. 

Ezra recently found a Pokemon card set I'd bought for Ike and accidentally left in the car. This unfortunately shook his already-wobbly belief in Santa and he asked me to tell him the truth. I got about four words into it before he changed his mind and decided he'd rather not know after all. 


("This is my surprise sweater." he explained. Okay then! One must always be prepared I guess.)







They are just too much. I need to remember the surprise sweater trick.


Those are amazing pictures! Apparently there is hope for the future over here. I missed that Noah’s sweater was Stranger Things in the last post, I love it.

That Santa is so dang Santa-y! "His eyes - how they twinkled! his dimples how merry, his cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry; his droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow, and the beard of his chin was as white as the snow!"


Super cute and definitely worth a second share on the santa visits posts! I love the second thought, don't tell me. I had that santa news dashed by my oldest sister who decided that her two younger sisters, myself the youngest at the time. I remember it so clearly being in the basement and feeling just crushed. Glad Ezra would rather keep the santa story alive another year. :)


My 10 year old has also decided that we will NOT talk about Santa this year, because it is the last year she will believe. I'm ok with this. But it does kind of suck that they're getting bigger. That doesn't seem quite fair.

The adorableness is almost too much. NOT!
