Ghosts from Christmas' past


Thought it would be fun to take a little walk down old memory lane.
I dug out the Santa photos that my darling mother displays every year on the buffet in her house.
I wanted to share their awkwardness ............ with the rest of the world.
Because nothing says Happy Birthday Jesus like a young girl sitting on some stranger's knee every year.

There are a few missing, I don't know why I couldn't find them.
This was a pretty well enforced December tradition.

Let us begin

1984
1985



1986


1987


1989


1993


1996


1997



1998
Don't judge me


1999
I am wearing my aunt's vintage sweater from when she was in Elementary school.
 I still wear it too!


2000
Thought we would spice things up this year. 
I dressed as my sister and she dressed as me.
( A slightly exaggerated version, I wasn't  that preppy)


2001
Boyfriend Santa photos!
Awww young love
I am also sensing a pattern here with the skirts and boots



2002
We chose to get our "Santa" photo at the Nutcracker Ballet with the Rat King instead.
 We thought he was much creepier looking.




2002
 I ended up with a Santa photo anyway with my Best Friends



2003
We thought Mom would enjoy this one.
Not sure if she actually did.
Aren't you surprised we haven't taken any with our cats in them?!


2005
This was my first year in California, no photos were taken with Santa this year, but for the sake of continuing the walk down memory lane I found my best representation of a holiday photo for the following corresponding years.


2006
Spoke too soon about the cat. There she is! On the beach no less. 
This photo was taken in December btw.
We used them on our Christmas cards this year.





2008
Back home in Seattle
( Only 2.5 weeks away from meeting my husband on a blind date!)


2009
Cutting down our tree



2010
Newly weds


2011
Just found out we are expecting Clark


2012
You might be thinking
 Is that the same black dress from 2008? 
Yes, it is.
Obviously a great purchase



And the more things change, the more they stay the same
