it's that time of year: fat men in suits

no matter how old i am, my mom demands asks that her three children take pictures with santa EVERY.SINGLE.YEAR.  guess it's more for the tradition and my little sister (almost 11) than it is for my little brother (almost 18) and i (mid 20-something).  plus, she has a tablescape at her house of all of our photos over the years.  funny, i look the EXACT SAME in every one since i've been 16.  anyways, today happens to be the big day that i get to sit next to (or even more disturbing and sometimes, on the lap of) a paid man in a suit.  don't get me wrong, i love santa, and he's good to me every year.  i just don't like the suit.  it's germy and i want to spray him down with a can of lysol.  it grosses me out.  but rather than causing a scene and having to face the wrath of my mother (who can be a bigger beyotch than me), i deal with the germs and put a smile on my face.

so in honor of today, i share with you some kids who hate taking santa pics even more than me.



{little girl through gritted teeth: billy, i told you NOT to ruin it this year for me.  you do it every year and i'm sick on it.  next year, it's just me and santa.  i'm forcing mom to cut you out of the family.}



{1-2-3... ruuuuuuuuuuun!!!}



{this kid could be jet li's baby.}



{i'm less concerned with the crying kids and more concerned with this santa's jet black, bushy eyebrows.}



{now THIS guy looks like santa.}


{you looking at ME, old man...??}


{little boy: girls.  always effing everything up.  i get dressed in my clip-on tie and mr. rogers sweatervest, and she has to go and pull this when i'm over here looking fly.}


{little girl: you put me in my favorite tutu skirt and heels for this sh*t, mom!!!  i'm not even a teenager yet, and i already hate you!!!}


{is it just me or do santa and little suzie look totally drunk??}

Yeah, I don't blame you for hating the pictures. Last time I sat on Santa's lap I was 19 (friend and I thought it would be so cute . . . ), and after the picture was taken and we got up to leave, Santa said "I think we need another one, I like you girls on my lap". Santa officially creeps me out.

Ohhh, but don't you make santa's night when you sit on his lap!! I'm not sure if I want to laugh or make a gross face right now.

Anyhow, yeah, I would think most parent's have their own classic Santa photos with their kids. I have mine from a few years ago, with my daughter screaming her head off. We go tonight but now that my kids are a little older they are pretty mellow about it.

And those pictures are killing me!

Those pics are ridic....but I'm still stuck on the fact that your mom makes you take pics with santa. I get that your sister is 11, but can't she be in the picture by herself?

ScoMan said...

Some hilarious pictures in there hahaha.

Thanks for sharing those with us. It reminds us that for some kids, Christmas isn't all about Santa.

I think that's awesome, always let mom have her way. It's obviously important to her and will no doubt provide for great laughs for years to come with your siblings.
