the cruel tradition


Everywhere, thousands of little children are getting dragged to the mall in their tacky holiday sweaters to get that quintessential photo of them with some strange dude in a red suit and beard... and somehow we expect them to be happy about it. Today we did just that.

I've never seen Jake look so bewildered except for maybe last years Santa photo. Is it weird that I kinda wish Jake was wigging out a bit more? I just think nothing says Happy Holidays like a photo of some sweet little toddler screaming at Santa. And can you blame them? Some Santa's definitely look like they crawled out from under a rock... or possibly a local strip bar. Check this one out...



Looks like Santa's been hitting the eggnog a few too many times. Here is a link of more scary Santa photos. I love it! Numbers 1 & 12 are my favorites.

mmm... cookie.



yes, I know. Another damn photo of my kid with shmutz all over his face. If it weren't for, well, I guess a lot of things in this photo, I'd be sending it into agents. He's such a little camera whore. He just looks so proud of himself doesn't he?
I was out Christmas shopping today and this very flamboyant man exclaimed (yes, exclaimed) that Jake looked like a mini Brad Pitt... I honestly didn't know how to respond but I thought about hugging him. Now I don't know about Brad Pitt, but I guess if I had to agree I'd say he's definitely more of a Fight Club or Oceans Brad than a Interview with the Vampire Brad.

I couldn't resist.
