Waiting 26 years for Santa

The Brill family, mother Tarie Brill, her three sons, their wives, and babies, from Edmonds, Monroe, and Seattle, happily wait in line at the Lake Forest Park Towne Center on Sunday, December 19, to have a family picture taken with Santa Claus.

Tarie said, "We've been doing this for 26 years. I have all the photos framed and hanging on the wall." She said that family photos with Santa are a long-standing family tradition. "I have photos of me as a child, sitting on Santa's knee at Frederick and Nelson." She laughed, "It was so long ago that the first photos are in black and white."

They missed a couple of recent years, so this year is particularly special.  Not only are they resuming a family tradition, this is the first year with grandchildren in the photo.

Santa is located on the lower level, next to the escalator.  Santa's schedule.
