Baby Picture Sunday: Memories of Christmas Past

Until this image, I never realized that a double exposure was even possible on a digital camera. Entirely the product of my photography ineptitude, this picture of a two-year-old Christmas tree-intoxicated Darren is like an IV of holiday spirit to me.

This picture of three-year-old Sarah, freshly dismounted from the lap, going into gestural detail of her wish list charms me to no end. Even in sharp profile, you can see she's smiling; and Santa is paying such rapt attention.

Christmas doesn't get any merrier.

So how did I keep with this week's theme of "Red?" Maybe Darren's cheeks and Sarah's (and Santa's) outfits?
Be sure to go over and visit Debi at Who Says 8 is Enough? to see more images -- that likely kept a closer connection to the "red" direction -- shared via:

These are fantastic photos! I love how animated Sarah apprears in that photo! You can almost her her describing what she wants. just perfect!!!!

And, who would've thought you can do that with digital? Bet you couldn't repeat that even if you tried :)

Thanks for playing along!

Well the first one is ART. I love it.
The second one is a story in itself.
Santa is probably intrigued by Sarah's poly-syllabic vocabulary.

I didn't know you could do that with a digital camera! That's awesome!
I hope Santa brought Sarah everything she asked for!
