so we decided to mix up santa this year & by "mix up" i mean we did it portland style. we visited HIPSTER SANTA and he was kinda the best thing ever. his chair was made out of pdx carpet, he had a man bun, he wore "the dude" sweater over a flannel, he had a deer head over his seat, peppermint candy earrings & "naughty or nice" tattoos. i mean, ya don't get much more portland than that.
coincidentally this was the most fun the boys have ever had visiting santa. it was the first year both kiddos wanted to actually sit up on the chair with him & they had giant smiles on their faces the entire time. he was so fun & nice to them, they just had a blast.
i mean how many of the same ol' santa photos does one family really need? i'm so happy we did something different & special for where we live that we can look back at & laugh at for years to come.
