"But Santa, what black eyebrows
you have....."


Santa (who will remain nameless) took me along as photog to capture a sweet moment at a boys' home up the street. Cannot begin to describe how funny it was that he made all the "boys" sit on his knee. It was actually pretty touching as he took a special moment for each one despite their embarrassment and protests. There was quite a bit of giggly going around but they all did it. One boy said,

"Santa if I ask you for somethin will you give it to me?"

"Try me!" bellowed Santa.

"Will you get me a Bentley?"

"I'll tell you what, son, you go to college and you get yourself a good job and I'll buy you that Bentley" promised Santa.

"Santa, you gotta pen so I can get your name and number ."


This cute boy ran back to his room to get this sweater and hat so he could give the picture to his mother.....

No doubt they just came across the hippest Santa this side of the North Pole..
Merry Christmas sweet boys.

I like black people. I've forgotten what they're like. Utah is seriously lacking in that department. However, my roommate is black. But when it comes down to it, i am more black than he is. Good Job Mr. Ric.
