A Visit to Santa
We had our annual visit to see Santa at Phipps before Thanksgiving this year (in anticipation of Catelin’s surgery). I had to wake little miss up from her nap in order to get there on time so she was not a happy camper.
Steve met us at the mall and helped the kids write their Christmas lists.
Then it was time to see Santa up close and personal. MJ was excited beyond words. Ty was hesitant but willing to get up onto his lap. Catelin- well, you can see how that went…
That is Curious George she is holding. A few months ago she picked him up out of the pile of stuffed animals in the boys’ room and now he is the equivalent of her “lovie.” She has never watched an episode of the show in her life, but she sure does love that little monkey. Even he couldn’t calm her down this time.
After the pictures Santa took some time to ask all of them about their wish lists. Ty was shy but did say he wants a new train track. MJ asked for a teenage mutant ninja turtle play set, a Crayola light designer and the Joker to go with his Batman set. Catelin wanted to be in mommy’s arms and admire Santa from afar.
