Santa Claus is Coming to Town...

09:22:00 Posted by Lara Clayton , , , , 3 comments

Yesterday, Shaun turned himself into Santa Claus for the benefit of our nephews - and to his relief he wasn't rumbled. Little J took photographs on his new Vtech camera, and truly believed that Santa had descended in  Blackpool to pay him a special visit...
Despite being poorly, Shaun filled our house with the spirit of Christmas - creating a memory that will never be forgotten, by any of us present.
  
Being Santa

He shaved off his diggers
(left hair in the sink)
Pinned ponytail up
before adding a wig.

On went the trousers,
black boots and a hat –
a cushion for padding;
a toy filled sack.

He gathered his nerves
and knocked on the door;
the family all gasped,
it was Santa, for sure.

He dished out the presents,
told the kids to be good
Then made his escape
as fast as he could.


Thank you for reading,
Lara

Love the pictures.

Sorry to hear Shaun has been poorly. I do think the white hair and beard suit him. Perhaps he should consider building on this look for next movember?
