Hannah was excited when she found out she was going to visit Santa last night!! For weeks she’s had fun circling gift ideas in wish books, browsing through the toy area at stores, taking pictures of things she would like for Christmas and even drawing pictures for Santa. When she found out that she was actually going to see him she was a cute combination of over-the-top excited and shy all at the same time. She suddenly wasn’t too sure she actually wanted to talk to the Jolly Old Man himself or just mail her letter to him. After a little encouragement she was ready to go so we stopped at the house to get her changed and tidy her hair after a day of play at school.
In the end it didn’t really matter as she was too shy to say much to him but Santa did a great job of asking her questions until they found something she would like. She loves stuffed animals right now so he was right with her when he suggested a new stuffed animal!
And because this is always fun….
