This idea came from my friend C, after I saw her hall table adorned with years of framed photos of her children with Santa, as well as some Santa shots from when she and her husband were kids.

While I don’t have a lot of official Santa shots (there is one gem of my brother and me with Jolly Old Saint Nick) there are lots of Christmas photos of my girls, some which were made into holiday cards, and some that are snapshots of the four of us (we usually take the same photo op on my parents’ couch every Christmas Eve). My husband is the eighth of nine children, so there are few photos of him at all, let alone on Santa’s knee!

As always, I turned to Dollarama for my supplies, picking up a few silver frames and some Christmas wrapping paper, which I used as mattes behind the photos. The results:

I displayed these last Christmas for the first time, and they’re real conversation-starters. I think they’ll mean even more as the girls get older and perhaps refuse to wear coordinated red and green velvet outfits…or Santa hats.
