The boys and I went to visit Santa on Friday. I was so excited to see that the line wasn't very long, especially for 1:00pm the Friday before Christmas.
After several minutes of standing there, I soon found out that Santa was out "feeding reindeer" until 2:00. I thought about getting out of line to do a little shopping, but in 5 minutes the line doubled in length and I figured we probably weren't going to be able to get a picture if we didn't stay in line.
The boys behaved perfectly, considering they were hungry and anxious.
2:10pm..............FINALLY........Santa bellows a "HO....HO...HO..." and the long wait was worth it. The look on the their little faces was priceless. Garrett became real still, mesmerized by the sight of Santa. He watched Santa intently and with a very serious tone in his voice, said "Mom, LOOK..............it's Santa." Colton is the little boy who seems to think the world revolves around him, he just kept waving and smiling at the big guy, I think he thought Santa was looking solely at him.
Here is the picture of the boys with Santa.
Garrett didn't hardly move an inch. When asked what they wanted for Christmas; he moved in real close, with eyes as serious as could be, asked for Transformers.
Colton said he had been a very good boy and he wanted trains. As Santa turned back to Garrett, Colton continued to talk (eyes closed) as if he had Santa's undivided attention, he wants airplanes...........trains........The Polar Express train.....etc.
After our visit with Santa, we had a little snack in the food court, took a ride on the Merry Go Round and topped it all off with an Aunt Annie's cinnamon & sugar Pretzel.
All in all it was a fun day.
MERRY CHRISTMAS to everyone!
We miss you all.
Jeff, Linda, Garrett, and Colton
