Well, when you pair a shy two year old with a jolly, fat, hairy man who says Ho,Ho, Ho- the shy two year old is now a frightened two year old. Then the frightened two year old wants to get as far away from the jolly, fat man as he can. I tried to get my petrified toddler to sit but he wanted me and only me at that point. And then, since *I* was already in the picture, we might as well pop Matt in too! And WALLA- this all leads to the beautiful photo below, haha!
I think this should win an award for most akward family Christmas photo. :)
Sidenote 1: Yes, my 2 year old is wearing Crocs and purple Halloween socks. Don't judge.
Sidenote 2: Yes, I am wearing sneakers. I wasn't supposed to be in the photo.
Sidenote 3: Yes, this photo WAS all my mother-in-law's idea. Never again!
Sidenote 4: We DID have a pretty awesome looking Santa!
Sidenote 5: I am now done with the Sidenotes!
