This is my second-favorite Jamie-and-Santa photo. Look at those chubby knees! The pinafore dress (also, I believe, featured in my school picture from the same year)! The genuinely gleeful expression!
'84 was a big year for me. After all, it was my first year of school (first grade). Since we were living in Philly at the time, I'm going to assume that's where this photo was taken. I'm also going to assume that Santa was an alcoholic Italian (the dark hair on his hands and eyebrows and the big red nose - you know I'm right!).
I'm pretty sure I got a Cabbage Patch Kid this Christmas. Thanks for that, Santa!
