Santa With a Tune
December 06, 2011
Santa is making his rounds this time of year! It’s time for the little ones to line up to tell the jolly old elf all their wishes for Christmas this year. When I was a young girl, I was actually quite afraid of Santa. My first photo with Santa shows me screaming and crying. When my family asked me how I liked my visit with Santa, I became sheepish and said, "I cried." My mother says it was several more years before I’d even go near the big guy.
When my children were born, it became my turn to initiate them into the world of Santa. I took my youngest when she was just a baby so that there was no chance of screaming. In fact, she just slept through the whole thing. Whew! When her little brother came along, we went again. My kids did much better than their mother. There was a hint of uncertainty on their faces, but no screaming as their mother had done. Guess they were just made of tougher stock than their mom!
Join us this Saturday, December 10th, at 10 a.m. at the Riverside Branch to make your own memories with Santa! Bring along a camera to capture the moment-screaming or smiling!
