This week's smiles....week 96

Happy Friday to all you wonderful callers that pop by each week.  A big thank you to all of you who also took the time out to share your happy moments.  I am featuring Kay's post from last week that explained a lot to me....I just knew there was someone causing the scales to read such big numbers when I stand on them. ;-)  Thanks for the giggle Kay.

My week has, as always, been filled with smiles.  I am so lucky to have such a lot in my life that gives me reasons to be happy.  I'm sharing a few festive photos that made me smile....

Not quite sure what Sam's face says.....I think it's a boy thing but Lexi certainly looks rather happier about having the picture taken.
See what I mean about it being a boy thing?  Steve needed his daddy there too to make him feel safe :-)
Phoebe and Louise were more than happy to have their photo taken with the big man in red and had also enjoyed the fun of having their faces painted....aren't they just gorgeous. :-)
So there you are folks...just a few of my smiles from this week and if none of those make you smile then I'm adding a link to a video Shell put on Facebook.  

I really hope  you can click on the link and enjoy a giggle.

Please share your smiles by linking them below and let's all do our best at making the world a happier place.

Ah, what happy days! My child was ALWAYS a reluctant Santa visitor..he's too big a thing in their heads, stranger, pressure to enjoy - I don't know why but we stopped offering in the end...strange huh! I'm not linking Annie because my post is very much a review, despite the hilarity that I enjoyed with the products..if it's not against your rules, then I'll be happy to, of course!

Funny boys! At least Phoebe and Lulu have a nice souvenir photo.

Happy Friday :)

Aww Bless them. I think it is a trust thing with the boys!

Adorable pictues. The little children are precious. Memories...somewhere buried in rubber maid I've each year where my 2 sons visited Santa. They were eager to tell them their wants. Thanks for hosting Annie, have a great weekend.

Hi Annie, sorry I'm so late, it's been a busy day. I love the pics of your grands meeting Santa though I do think some of the very little ones find him a little frightening to begin with. None more so than my own son who, at 2 years old, screamed in terror when St Nicholas(Sankt Nikolaus)offered him a sweet in a German supermarket. I don't know who was more taken aback, St Nicholas, who looked rather grand in his red and gold bishop's robes, or us! The girls look fabulous with their painted faces. Have a lovely weekend. Hugs, Elizabeth xx

Hi Annie.....oooh aren't the grandies just at that wonderful age - Christmas is an exciting time for them and those photos are priceless - at least half the kids embrace Santa or they just don't. I couldn't open the link. Happy Friday and enjoy your weekend hugs Robyn

Lovely Christmas photos of the little ones. We do spend a lot of time telling our children not to talk to strangers, and not to accept presents from them. It´s no wonder when they are wary of Santa. But the photos are great all the same. They must all be getting so excited now. have a wonderful time together. Kate x

I meant to say, I can´t open the link either. Kate

Hi Annie. I have been following your card blog for ages but just found this blog on Robyn's blog, so I am joining in a day late. Have a good day.
I love the Christmas photos.

I just got home from shopping for the third day in a row, and realized I had missed Friday Smiles. I can't seem to get my head on straight now that it's December.

I had no idea kids were afraid of Santa. I never visited a Santa, because my Grandparents told me early on that Santa was there for kids to enjoy Christmas, but not for anything more than symbolism. Later, I learned it was a way to turn Christmas into a commercial success. I grew up knowing there was no Santa, no Easter Bunny, and no Tooth Fairy. Some might think I missed out on my childhood, but I think it's why I'm so BRUTALLY honest.

Looks like the kids caused YOU (and me too) to smile this week, even though they frowned.
