Eleven-month-old Caroline Brewer usually is fascinated with beards, according to her mother, Christine Brewer of Martinsburg, W.Va.
On Santa Claus' lap Saturday at J. Cooper Gallery in Shepherdstown for a holiday photograph, Brewer's curiosity wore thin. The Santa hat-donning child born on New Year's Eve wanted mom.
What she wanted Santa to bring her was moot, regardless.
"We imagine her aunts are going to spoil her a lot," Brewer said while waiting in line with other parents and their youngsters in tow for the Christmas in Shepherdstown event hosted by the gallery at 140 E. German St.
Sponsored by a host of organizations, along with the Corporation of Shepherdstown, the annual holiday celebration continues today, with events also scheduled for next weekend.
