So, we left off yesterday, finally able to line up to see Santa. The boy was so excited about this turn of events! The anticipation was killing him, though. We had dragged him all over the mall for a couple of hours, and he really wanted to see this guy! They have been reading about Santa at school and we have talked about him at home, and this kid was VERY excited to have his time with him.
In fact, just before we turned the corner, he was having a hard time knowing what to do.
But then, it was FINALLY his turn.
Santa spoke to him in great detail about how this all works.
If he's a good boy, he'll bring him presents.
LM didn't have much to say - his present list is very short anyway...
...he would like some boots.
And Santa also told him to leave out some cookies.
Then he gave LM a photo of himself.
This has become a prized possession.
Sometimes LM just sits and stares at it.
Afterward, he told Daddy all about his visit with Santa
Then Mommy went and bought two of the "official" photos.
This is one.
And this is two.
They do a really nice job.
As I said at the top of the first post on this time together, it was a really special afternoon. It's a Christmas memory with my child I will always remember. It was very cool.
See you soon.
