HOUMA, La. (AP) - A south Louisiana fundraiser is renting Santa's lap instead of selling photos of kids with the jolly old elf.
  
The Courier reports that the Kiwanis Club of Houma is keeping up with the digital times.
  
Member Joan Malbrough said in a news release that the group used to sell photo prints to raise money, but most people now want to take their own digital pictures.
  
She says, "We're switching to renting out Santa's lap to help fund all the good things our club does for the community."
  
Saturday morning's rentals will be $5 for one child or $10 for photos with a family of up to five.
  
That's in addition to buying tickets for the annual pancake breakfast with Saint Nick.
