A sweeter Santa there could not be…

by Susan


Sophia was so excited to dress up like Santa that she even said the word for the first time.

(Well, it may have sounded a little different… she didn’t quite get the “s” sound…)


She grinned with delight and said over and over “Hanta, Hanta, Hanta.”

What a sweet picture! Isn’t it adorable how children learn to speak? My two year old says

“Nen nen” when referring to Batman!

From the song? “Nene nene nene nene BATMAN!”

The lighting in this picture is perfect! Love the hint of yellow/firelight tones behind her… makes me feel warm inside! :)
