It’s the week before Christmas. Really, I double-checked. If your December has gotten away from you and your kids haven’t whispered their wishes to the big guy yet never fear! Not only do you still have 7 days to squeeze it in, but we’re also going to help by telling you where to get the photographic evidence for free. All allow you to take your own photo or offer free pictures with Santa while you are there.
