This is what I would send.
Mary Lu, um, doesn't like Santa.
Never has, actually.
I honestly think this is the best photo we've taken in a long, long time.
Probably since last Christmas, when we snapped this gem:
And let's be honest: who really wants a bunch of polished, happy-shiny-people-holding-hands photos of their kids with Santa anyway? That's just boring.
So I'll take my angry kid on Santa's lap any ol' day.
Just another Christmas with the Heldts!
