LAFAYETTE, Louisiana (KLFY) – This is that instant captioned on film of a baby who is so tired from waiting to see Santa Claus that once the big moment arrived, he curled up on his tummy and fell asleep.

Instead of getting the little one’s parents to wake him up, Santa Claus said he would pretend to be asleep himself and posed for a picture of the pair snoozing. Awwwwwwwwww!!!!!

This image captured the hearts of our KLFY web team and spread lots of festive cheer throughout the newsroom.

Saturday’s Santa Sighting and photo session was sponsored by Unitech Training Academy at their annual Jingle Jangle Sneaux Fest.

The event is open to the public until 4 p.m. and features 10 tons of real snow along with carousel rides, a train ride, free candy, face painting, and over 30 custom designed Christmas trees.

Mrs. Claus is also on sight with milk and cookies for the kids.
