Santa Recovery

There's a lot of planning that goes into seeing Santa. Then there's the anticipation and the event itself is exciting but a little rushed. You need some time to decompress afterwards.
It was also cold in Santaland so I gave my coat up to a needy orphan. No, wait, she's not an orphan, her mother was just haggling for a package of the official photos of the event. So we were amusing ourselves over in the corner. There used to be a big old Nutcracker statue in that corner but not any more. Perhaps they decided they needed more room for the needy orphans/sugar-hyped Santaholics. So we took pictures of our reflections in the over sized ornaments hanging from the ceiling. Lord knows we couldn't just stand there and talk to each other until mom was done.

This was our first one. It took a while to get the hang of it. It took me 3 tries to get the kid to look at the right ornament. We're in there, though, if you look hard enough.

This is our best one, I think. The one at the top is a crop of it. You can tell vaguely that we're in there but it's still arty. Eh, maybe it's just me but we had a lot of fun doing it.
