santa visit My name is Aurora and This is my daughter Emily visiting santa at Stonebriar Mall in Frisco. She wasn't upset about santa. She was screaming because her dad and I walked away. She calmed down once she saw his beard and heard him talking but this screaming photo will be an awesome memory for her baby book. She is almost 6 months old and is such a good baby Sent from Yahoo Mail on Android

Merry Meltdown Good evening, This is a picture of Daniel and Isabel Zamarripa at Daniel's Christmas Program last Friday. The school Daniel attends was sharing how Christmas is celebrated around the world, and of course Santa was in the U.S. section, so we were able to get a free picture with him. Isabel, as you can tell, had a "Merry Meltdown!" Let me know if you need more information to be able to share. Daniel is 5 and Isabel is 9 months. Thank you! Best regards, Irma Zamarripa 972.978.9863
