Read To Me, Santa!

At age 20 months, my son was sure of one thing: his love for lift-the-flap Maisy, his very favorite book. He was a whole lot less sure about that old guy in the red suit.

As we approached Santa in the mall that year, Cory stood a good 10 paces behind me. Nope, he wanted nothing to do with that guy. No amount of coaxing would convince Cory to come closer until I handed Maisy to Santa. As Santa began to read, Cory inched closer and closer and finally climbed on Santa's lap. Score one for Mom!

Oh, I loved this age. It was such a sweet and tender time. If only I could bribe him so easily now.

To make this layout, I used the December kit from My Creative Scrapbook which featured the Dear Santa collection from the new manufacturer Photo Play.

Here's a closer look at the embellishments:

They were just perfect for this photo.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. I loveeeeeeeeeeeeee this! LOVING that photo, the sled and that reindeer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. What a precious story! I absolutely love that great moments like this are preserved through scrapbooking (and blogging!)
