Last night after having our Christmas card pictures taken I decided to take advantage of Hannah being dressed up and we drove to a local mall to visit with Santa!
So far every time Hannah has seen Santa this year he has been in a ‘paw-wade’ so I wanted to prepare her a bit that he would be visiting with her rather than just waving from a float. I captured this quick bit of adorable video while she was in the car. Truly, her sweet, wonderful, precious personality is contagious and I can’t help but smile every time I hear her sweet voice! She was so excited and just wanted to wrap this up so that she could get on with the fun of visiting with Santa!
Our mall has a wonderful area for visiting Santa and they’ve made an effort to make the waiting area as child friendly as possible. There are games, colouring sheets and a TV playing Christmas movies. The time flies by for the kiddos as they wait which in turn means it flies by for mommy too! Another bonus is that the free(!) pictures and video are emailed to you the moment you complete your visit with Santa. It doesn’t get better than that!
Hello big guy!
Hannah was excited about being able to talk to Santa although whenever I asked her if she wanted me to go with her or if she wanted to sit on his lap alone she always said she wanted mommy with her. I was happy to do that so went prepared with that plan. When it was our turn I went in and put down our coats and my purse and when I looked up this was what I saw!
She was a little hesitant but had easily walked up to Santa all by herself and allowed him to pick her up. She didn’t talk to him when she was on her own but I was still so pleased that she was comfortable visiting with him! Way to go Hannah!! Here’s the video they captured of Hannah’s visit with Santa.
Christmas celebrations and preparations are in full swing for Hannah and I! I hope you’re enjoying the season too while still remembering the true Reason for the Season.
