River was SO EXCITED to visit Santa this year.
We headed to the mall yesterday so she could see him and Mrs. Claus.
At first, she was a little shy.
But then she warmed up and was so excited!
Santa asked what she wanted for Christmas…
And she told him she wanted a Dora Fairy Princess Doll.
This was news to her parents, though. They had to run out to the store and get one for her to be sure that she wasn’t disappointed.
The moral of the story: Be sure to take your kid to see Santa earlier than two days before Christmas. That way, you have PLENTY of time to get another present. You know, if your kid pulls something out of left field when Santa asks what they want.
Of course, your kid could be like Eli and want nothing to do with Santa or his wife.
I just love that picture.
