Christmas Merry, It Is & Day 6 Treats

Who: Miles, Max, Mason and Maddox Mitchell

Location: Front - Northpark Mall in Dallas, Texas (The BEST Santa ever.  He does story time in the morning, then takes him time with each kid.) Back - Our back yard by the firewood pile

Props: The Northpark Santa display is very cute.  It's actually a little home that you go inside so the lighting is fantastic for photos.  Marc Robbins Photography take the photos, you can buy prints or digital rights to the photos.  We go every year and are never disappointed in our experience.  The Yoda Santa hats were our props on the back of the card.  The Mitchell Men are huge Star Wars fans, so when we saw the hats at Hobby Lobby, I knew they would be perfect.

Photographer: Front - Marc Robbins Photography; Back - Mom (Nicole)

Designer: mpix

Favorite Thing: I love Mason's expression on Santa's lap.  It just captures the childhood belief in the magic of Santa!

Katy's Thoughts: I love how happy and joyful these sweet Mitchell Men look! I LOVE that Nicole made them coordinate but they aren't matchy-matchy. I love the Santa. I love Yoda. I just love it!

Cindy's Thoughts: The first thing that pops into my mind when I see this picture is --- Glad there's four Mitchell Men for the three Munson ladies to choose from! ;)  (And the girls wouldn't even have to change their monogram!  It's the little things!) And then I think how stinking good all of these kids are with Santa - NO TEARS!  Impressive.  I love each boys look on both the front and the back of the card, personalities do shine in pictures!

How can you recreate this card? We love featuring Santa on a card!  Try it, you will love the magic it brings to your card!  Also, the Merry Mommas (well, really our husbands and kiddos) are huge Star Wars fans, don't be afraid to go with what you love!

Get PINspired:
  1. Not all kids like Santa as much as the Mitchell Men...look at this sad face, and this one...and this one!
  2. There are lots of cute Santa poses that aren't your traditional sitting on Santa's lap.  This leg hug is cute!  So is this hug!  And we love this very atypical Santa pic!
  3. ...Mommy kissing Santa Claus!

Did all this Santa talk make you think of cookies and treats?  It did for us!
