Well, we tried to be jolly! Look at that smirk!! Santa looks thrilled to be working his minimum wage gig at the mall and Ella looks a bit terrified. All in all, it's not the worst Santa pic I've seen, but for the $25 I paid, it should have been better. Ella was all excited, too, about seeing Santa.
Now here is the pic that I took - I got them both to smile, at least! Ho, ho, humbug!
More to come as I'm pondering Christmas and commercialism, but I have to go to choir practice. See you back here soon.
