Holiday Photo Fails Are Wonderful

This year Jack met the Easter Bunny for the first time and he was none too thrilled to do so. He didn’t cry, but he certainly wanted to bolt off the giant orange rabbit’s lap. This photo is the only one the photographer took because Jack would not sit still for another. I love it. It’s perfect.

We had a similar reaction this past Christmas with Santa as well. Being held by a stranger with a bushy beard and a fuzzy red suit was not Jack’s cup of tea. Honestly, though, I enjoy the photos where he isn’t sitting on the Easter Bunny’s or Santa’s lap with a huge grin on his face, posed. I prefer a natural reaction – whether positive or negative. I know in the years to come when we look through our family photo album (will we have albums in the future?) we’ll be talking about the story behind these photos and laughing our tails off.

Do you like to take holiday photos? Do your kids like to sit with the Easter Bunny and Santa? Share your stories with us!

    Seems he really has the same reaction in this photo…Maybe he doesn’t like to take a photo with other things…

    It’s unusual actually…A lot of kids want to be with them, especially Santa but as I see, he doesn’t like it…Weird…

    Oh my gosh, I love the bunny photo! HOW ADORABLE. I agree – I’d rather have sad faces than fake smiles!

    That is too funny! My son did well this year with Santa but not well at ALL last year- needless to say, that photo is still hung up in our living room. ;)

    I love seeing kids reactions to Santa – we’ve got some classics over the years…some kids just don’t like the jolly man in red
