When The Child Is Terrified Of Santa
I don’t think that this little boy’s parents will be in any rush to take him to see Santa next year. Have you ever seen such fear in the face of a toddler? It’s kind of comedic when you think about it – he is sitting on the lap of one of the kindest people in the world, after all.
When Children Don’t Like Their Matching Sweaters
All three of the children in this holiday photo look absolutely miserable with their matching sweaters (I bet the mother and father are happy with that investment). Regardless, they look absolutely adorable with their collared shirts and festive pull-overs.
When A Little Girl Isn’t Camera Shy
Have you ever seen such confidence in a toddler? I have little doubt in my mind that this girl is going to be the biggest diva ever in her day. She has certainly captured everybody’s attention in her family’s Christmas card.
When Nobody Likes Their New Holiday Pajamas
Sometimes we need to learn when enough is enough. Unfortunately for this family, they went a little too far when purchasing their children a set of matching Christmas pajamas. You can see the looks of absolute disgust and unhappiness on the faces of all kids. If there is one thing for sure, that family will never purchase matching clothing ever again, even if their children look adorable in it.
When Everybody Likes Their Holiday Pajamas A Little Too Much
On the other hand, you could get it just right. These children look so happy with their new holiday PJ’s that it simply brings a smile to my face. I’m not going to lie, they do look incredibly comfortable.
When A Child Prefers Halloween
We all have our favorite holidays, and, as you can clearly tell, this little boy definitely prefers Halloween to Christmas. His parents don’t seem to mind his unfestive outfit, making this family photo even cuter.
When A Child Doesn’t Mind Losing His Shirt
We all do crazy things in moments of terror. This little boy would rather lose his shirt than sit on the lap of Santa. I don’t think that his parents will be too chuffed with how this Christmas photo turned out.
The Girl Who Thinks That Santa Is A Dog-thief
This little girl is not impressed with Santa’s dog – in fact, she looks absolutely terrified of it. We don’t understand why, because Santa’s fluffy helper is simply adorable. Either way, this probably isn’t the festive photo that the family was hoping for.
This Baby Looks Just Like Ebenezar Scrooge
Where do we even begin with this gem? This little baby looks absolutely terrified, which isn’t the best emotion for a family Christmas photo. We don’t know what he’s scared of, but it must be something quite traumatic to cause that face. Either way, I think that the parents were hoping for something a little more festive.
Some Children Just Won’t Sit Still
The first step to having a successful family Christmas photo is getting your children to sit still. Unfortunately for this family, their one kid did not get the memo. Even the baby doesn’t look too impressed with her sibling.
Some Children Don’t Look Festive, Or Happy
These two youngsters don’t look too happy about having their picture taken. It’s kind of ironic that the Christmas card is titled ‘Happy Holidays’ when the poor boy is crying his eyes out. His younger sister also doesn’t look too chuffed with how things have played out.
This Baby Looks Terrified Of Her Siblings
We don’t mean to get too dark, but it kind of looks like the little boy and girl in this photo have a gun pointed at their baby sister’s back. I’ve never seen such terror on the face of such an adorable person.
This Baby Looks Like He’s Gotten Into The Alcohol Cabinet
While a few of the baby’s on this list have looked terrified, this baby seems the opposite – he looks more than happy to have his picture taken. In fact, it kind of looks as though he’s gotten into his parent’s alcohol cabinet.
When The Parents Forget That They Have Two Children
The little boy in the background doesn’t seem too happy with how much attention his brother is getting – I don’t even know if his parents are aware that he is there. This family holiday photo definitely needs retaking.
When The Fingers Are Just Too Irresistible
How adorable is this family photo? It’s kind of hilarious that the three siblings decided to sneak in a taste of their fingers at the exact same time, but that doesn’t make it any less cute.
When The Bribes Aren’t Effective
The mother seems to be getting a little upset with how uncooperative her daughter is being. Maybe they should try promising the little girl some more pink clothes for Christmas in order to get her to join them on the bench.
When The Little One Discovers The Truth About Santa
Ah, another terrified child on the front of a Christmas card. The photographer really did a great job of capturing the unhappiness on her face. What’s the bet that she just found out that Santa isn’t real?
When The Photographer Captures The Best Nap In The World
That little boy looks way too tired for a photoshoot. Either way, this family Christmas card is adorable. I really love how unbothered the parents look about the fact that their son is having the best nap of his life during their holiday celebrations.
When The Baby Doesn’t Want To Be Santa
This baby looks less than pleased about the fact that he is dressed up as Santa. However, we have to admit that his little hat and costume are really adorable. What’s even cuter is his sassy pose. Regardless, I think it’s safe to say that the family won’t be too happy with how this family Christmas card turned out.
Trying To Take A Photo Of A Teenager Is Hard
Any parents out there would know what it’s like to have a teenager around when trying to take holiday photos. For some reason, they just refuse to cooperate, leaving us with this wonderful gem of a photo. Even though it’s pretty funny to us, I don’t think that the family will be too chuffed about it.
The Cat Wants To Be In The Spotlight
This cat simply doesn’t understand the concept of a family Christmas photo. Instead, he decided that he was just too adorable to not be the star of the show, leading to this wonderful shot. The only way that this photo could be cuter is by having both the cat and the baby dressed up in little elf costumes.
This Toddler Thinks That His Sibling Is Wearing A Wig
We’re not too sure what is going on in this picture, but it looks painful – I don’t think that I have ever seen so much cuteness and unhappiness in one photo. It’s also kind of funny that such an adorable baby boy can cause such havoc. Maybe he thinks that his sister is wearing a wig.
When It Is Easy To Miss The Third Kid In The Photo
If you take a quick glance at this family photo, you might think that there are only two children in it. However, if you look a little closer, you would realize that there are actually three. Yes, that black mess of hair is attached to a body. There must be something really interesting on her jeans for it to ruin the family Christmas photo.
When The Child Almost Injures Himself
This picture was taken at just the right time. If it were taken just a few seconds later, that little boy would be on the floor, clutching his head in pain. It’s still kind of adorable, though, because he looks so happy.
