I've wanted to scrap these two pics together for a long time, and finally just did it.
JOURNALING: When Daniel was nine months old Jesse and I were so excited for him to have his first Christmas (maybe a little too excited). Afterall it wasn't like he was going to remember any of it. Nonetheless, we were excited just the same. One December morning we were shopping at our local grocery store when we noticed that they were having pictures with Santa. What fun! So, of course we got in line with Daniel. They snapped the sweetest pic of Daniel with Santa and handed us a polaroid. We walked off pushing our shopping cart and gushing over how cute it was, when I noticed in the photo just behind Santa's head on the right hand side, a six pack of Budweiser Beer. I kid you not. In a Christmas display for children to have their photos taken with Santa was a six pack of beer! I stopped in my tracks and said to Jesse, "Oh my gosh! We just had our baby's first picture with Santa taken with BEER SANTA!" Jesse was like, "What?!" as I pointed to the six pack peeping out from behind Santa's hat. We started laughing so hard we were crying making spectacles of ourselves. We knew we would be visiting Mall Santa in the very near future. If you look really hard you can see the six pack, but even so, I have to admit it is still a sweet pic. CHRISTMAS 2005
***As a note what made the beer more appalling to us was/is the fact we don't even drink alcoholic beverages. Not for any reason. We just don't.
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look:)
