Visits with Santa - 2015

Pictures with Santa is a long standing holiday tradition that brings wondrous joy to one child and fits of screaming to another. Either way, you'll have a Christmas memory to cherish forever. Just don't ask Santa for a Red Ryder carbine-action two-hundred shot range model air rifle... 'cause you'll shoot your eye out, kid!
