What you'll do for that elusive mall picture with Santa Claus

Lindsay and Lauren with Santa, November 2007
  • You'll expose a mall full of people, including mall Santa, to a contagious, virus-shedding toddler.
  • You'll bring your miserable, sick toddler to the mall.
  • You'll force her to sit on Santa some strange guy's lap.
  • You'll make the sisters wear complementary colors.
  • You'll make them wear brown because in 15 years they'll look back at these and say, "Chocolate and celery?! Seriously, Mom, you have such awful taste."
  • You'll stand behind the photographer and make her take 3 shots because your toddler is freaking out to be in a stranger's lap while making funny faces at your toddler to get her to stop crying.

You'll shoot your eye out!

+1 WMP for the chocolate & celery outfit - what were you thinking? :)

Ooh, thank you. I forgot to mention Lauren's badly bruised face - she did a face-plant on the coffee table which earned a black eye, swollen nose, and scratches on her cheek. It probably isn't point-worthy though since even I can't tell from the picture...
