In addition to the family tradition of portraits with Santa Claus annually, we also strive to have a photo with the Station Master in the city - just for the husband and the children. Dads tend to miss out on being in the everyday photos so this one is for my husband.
We missed 2012 for reasons we cannot recall.
In 2011 when they were 8 month young infants (who had just woken up from their day nap) with dummies dangling from their rompers.
In 2013, you can see Miss Charlotte not cooperating and Master Daniel looking rather unsure of the fuss.
In 2014, the children have their backpacks & water bottles on them and rather enjoying the festivities of the season with their father struggling to carry them both in his arms. He did tell me after the photo was taken that he doubts he will be able to carry them both in his arms the following year.
In 2015, well...it is impossible to carry them both in his arms and they fully embrace the benefits of season! Counting down each day to Christmas and the favourite phrase in our home that the children use daily "Santa is always watching"... trust me, we use that to our advantage too!
From our family to yours, have a most wonderful time counting down to Christmas!
