Be sure to stop by Santa’s cabin (in the parking lot between the Apple store and Microsoft store) for your  Santa photo.

His cabin is cozy and warm and chock full of holiday cheer!  Bonus–Monday’s are Pet Days so bring in the whole furry, feathery family!

 

Funny Christmas story…

December 13th, 2012 | Filed under: news | Posted by Elf jennifer

On the last Christmas, the old man found it difficult to go out for shopping so he decided to send checks to relatives and friends instead of sending presents. In every card he wrote ‘ Please purchase gift of your choice’ and mailed it. After the festival he realized that he had received only few Christmas cards in return.

 

Puzzled over this, he went into his room, intending to write a couple of his relatives to ask what had happened. It was then, as he cleared off his cluttered desk that he got his answer. Under a stack of papers, he was horrified to find the gift checks which he had forgotten to enclose with the cards.

 

Do-over!

The Beattie kids RECREATED their 1987 Santa photo.

What a great idea!!  They even had a stylist there with their old photo to make sure they captured the drama, the fear, the distracted look of brother.  (And it took us 4 or 5 shots to get it just right)

 

Their original photo was taken at Frederick & Nelson, of course.

The new one?

Our vintage Frederick & Nelson set at Lake Forest Park!  The only thing missing is Santa Paul.

 

Thank you  for keeping the tradition alive!
