Searching Santemental Sandra Claus



OK, you all saw the photos yesterday.... those were from Santamental Sandra Claus from Dec 2009.
The one in the mirror yesterday was from 2004 and you will notice I used a Kodak. The red puffs were from 2008. That is how long I have played Sandra Claus at the nursing home.

The dark off center photos today are what hubby took and what I took in the mirror when I got aggravated at what he was taking. they were HORRIBLE so I used Christmas PAST

 It is OK to laugh.... starting NOW    NO you do NOT have to adjust the brightness on your screen, these are OUT OF THE CAMERA
 I am just THANKFUL they were to dark to see me




Below is the actual photo at the nursing home on Dec 12, 2011.... taken by the activity director

I think you look good in all the photos Sandra. I really like the last one at the nursing home with your favorite Santa.

You've been playing Santa for quite a few years so you obviously enjoy it. It seems like it would be fun and rewarding.

I love the BIG smile on your face, and you look beautiful in all of those pictures !
What a lovely thing to do, playing Santa for the elderly, who know doubt enjoy your effort as much as you do.
Hugs,

How dear of you, to "be Santa" at a Nursing Home. Really, really caring.

What a great thing you do...Sandra Claus! I think that it is really hard taking self-portraits and doubly hard having someone take a picture of me. I think yours are terrific.

Val said...

Oh Sandra Claus, you are beautiful and we can see and feel your warm and wonderful spirit. How wonderful to share your love with those at the nursing home.
P.S. love that your favorite Santa made accompanied you on your special mission!!

Picture #5 and the last one are my favorites! The first ones really aren't that bad, just a little dark. I take ones too dark, and just brighten them up and post them! You are the cutest Sandra Claus that I have ever seen, and the only one! I know everyone LOVED you and you made their day!!! Giving them really good memories. I remember your donkey friend pictures from last year, but I love the way you made him a twin!

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

You look so festive...a few smiles are even better. I like all of them.

Santa has never looked better! Great photos, Sandra. I think it's very sweet what you do for the folks at the nursing home. I bet they just love you!
Have a wonderful weekend!

I'm sure Sandra Claus brightens the day for the people in the nursing home when she comes visiting :)

It's really hard to take good indoors pictures, without flash they tend to get too dark and with flash too bright.

BlueShell said...

Oh, come on...You are a beautiful woman! I enjoy to see you!!! Very well done, indeed.
I can see The Christmas spirit all over you!
GOD BESS YOU ALL.

The many faces of Sandra Claus...I love it :)
I hate it when my husband takes control of the camera. He takes horrible pictures and he has no concept of zooming in on the subject.

Angela said...

I just love it Sandra Claus! I know how it is with getting a good picture of yourself. You have to do it yourself! lol And the classic bathroom shot is a hoot! That is how I get my picture taken too! lol

Merry Christmas!
