Every year at my daughter's school the PTA hosts a wonderful event called Cookies with Santa. Parents bake cookies for the kids, the holiday shop is open for business so children can buy their parents, friends and siblings a little something special. Do you remember how awesome it was to shop at the holiday shop when you were young? Of course Santa makes his appearance to visit the children, get their wish lists and ensure a few more weeks of good behavior, clean rooms and completed homework.
I have been the photographer the past two years and I have to say it is so rewarding. The looks on the kids faces when they get the opportunity to talk to the big man in red is priceless. If you have children in school I highly recommend getting involved. It doesn't have to be the PTA. Help out in the classroom, volunteer your time for an event. The payoff is so worth it when you see how proud your kids are to say "That's my Mom!"
Here are just a few... Enjoy!
