Merry Christmas from the Kuzdas

This was as close as Colette would get to Santa without crying. We tried to get one with just her and Santa Claus, but she wouldn’t let go of me. And then we tried to get a photo with me holding her next to Santa, but she wouldn’t stop crying and trying to get further away from him. Finally, and much to Zakk’s dismay since he definitely did not want to be in this photo, she stopped crying when Daddy held her and Mama sat between her and Santa. Zakk thinks I’ve scarred her for life. I say it builds character and she won’t remember this next year anyway. But I may have scarred Zakk for life. Hehehe…

Here’s hoping you all have a very merry Christmas!

Oh, and you should check out last year’s photo for comparison. Same Santa, but my oh my how that little girl has changed!

    Zakk and Rocket are clearly displeased with the entire Santa affair, as it has become known in Portland.

    Wonder if Kristen is on their “naughty” list?

  5. Mom says:

    Who are the two grumps to the left of Santa??? There is a beautiful believer but those two have the same look of confusion and disbelief!!!!!

    What a great picture of all of you. Soon she will fight you for Santa’s lap 🙂

    Kristin and Zack brace yourselves for the happiest child ever!!! The two of you are amazing parents and it shows in every photo or video I see. I continue to be amazed by your imagination in rearing “Lady Collette” I miss you much! Barb
