We captured this shot of Father Christmas in our old house, I think it was 3 years ago. We did it to 'prove' that Father Christmas existed....as there was some doubt creeping in.
Note the snowy (icing sugar) footprints to the front door (no fireplace in this house!)
The kids still talk about this photo that we showed them one Christmas morning, before we went down to open the presents. It makes me happy remembering the efforts we went to to get this shot.....the borrowed costume, the cushion stuffed down the trousers, the light readings to get the image, but make Daddy just unrecognisable enough.
This year there was debate with my eldest about the truth behind Father Christmas. He had bought the question to us....and we felt it was time to come clean.
His response, after being triumphant that he had the truth, was 'But what about that photo you took?'. I explained that we had taken it......and he laughed for a good 5 minutes. It felt good to let him in on the secret, and he has promised to keep the truth from the little ones.
Merry Christmas to you all, however you will celebrate.
Hope that you have some magical moments in your celebrations.
