Rocket City Mom’s 2015 Sad Santa Photo Contest

It’s that time of year again! Santa has arrived full force and everyone and their mother is trying to get a pic with the big guy. If my kids pictures are any indication, the vast majority of these pictures are questionable representations of our children at best. The fact is, we’ve all got at least one photo through the years that resembles this one. You get them all dolled up, you wait in line, and then all you get are angry, crying, or goofy faces. What can you do but laugh?

Well, we’ve got an idea! You can share them on Rocket City Mom. Why not bask in solidarity? Let the world laugh WITH you and you could win a second chance at the perfect family Santa photo.
