Scary Santa?


I'm singing this weekend at the Dickens Festival in St. George. Today was my first day performing and they have a place where you can get pictures with Santa. We thought it would be fun to get Emmy's first official photos w/ Santa. Well, she didn't think it was so fun . . . she was totally scared of him!!!! It was so funny. He is a big burley man with a booming voice. He is the best looking Santa I've ever seen, exactly what I pictured Santa looking like. I tried distracting her even before I put her on his lap, but it was no use, the damage had already been done. She'd already seen and heard him. I hurried and put her on his lap and was jumping up and down, singing her favorite songs but nothing worked. So now we have a classic picture of Binga with Santa. What a great memory!

Before I read your post, I just looked at the Santa picture, and I thought, "That is the best Santa I have ever seen!" then I read those exact words in your post! I want to do a Santa picture too, but Mr. B said, "She'll just scream." Guess he's right--still might do it :)

He is the cutest Santa I have ever seen. And I think the picture is great. Good luck singing. Your the best.

Mr. Packer really is the REAL Santa Claus! Seriously...ask him anything and he will tell you the textbook answer! My boys have had pics with him and what's crazier is Reagan has a picture with him when he was about 4!! I'm telling you...he makes me believe! Love her picture though, it's a classic!

This is Travis Jacobson, Malie was one of my good buddies up in Washington. We served together for a week, but we were around each other almost our whole missions. You should have Malie sing a duet with you the next time you sing in public. He is great at, Away in a Manger, I have a video that proves it. I don't care what anyone says, we were great in our one and only duet together!
