Digital photography has changed the way I parent. In line at the post office, at a restaurant, even at home, the use of the digital camera is high on my list of distractions. This holiday season was no exception. The annual increase in inflatable yard decor combined with big B's love for treasure hunts sparked a very fun idea in our family: Mission Yard Santa.
For the past week or so, we have taken as many circuitous routes as possible in our outs and abouts, in search of the not-so-elusive Claus on the lawn. We have had such a great time amassing this collection! We have also had the opportunity to share the Christmas spirit with many a homeowner who wondered why a four-year-old was dangling a camera out of a car window to photograph their house.
Here are a few of our favorites. There are many, many more. Whenever possible, Big B took the pictures.
