We had such a fun time visiting with Santa this past weekend. Leo really is into Santa this year and loves everything about him. It's so cute. We went to a fun event sponsored by the Park Department that is a more intimate Santa visit than the normal one. There were only about 20 kids there, so each child had plenty of time with Santa. Also, each child received a present from Santa, which was great.
Before Santa made his arrival, some girl scouts were there to sing some Christmas carols. In the above pictures, you can see what Leo did the entire time they were singing. Why was he covering his ears? I have no idea, but everyone in attendance got quite a laugh!
Leo had no hesitation when sitting on Santa's lap. He really didn't want to get off of it, if his present wasn't right there, he could have stayed all day. Marcy on the other hand, wanted nothing to do with Santa. That's OK, maybe next year.
We made peanut butter balls and chocolate pretzels for Santa and Mrs. Claus. Leo was so excited to give them his tasty presents. When his name was called he hid the present behind his back until he got up to Santa and then gave it to him. It was so cute!
All of the well behaved children waiting for their turn with the big man.
Marcy's present from Santa was a baby doll, which she loved!
Leo got the slinky dog he's asked Santa for already and has been wanting for months. He was overjoyed, as you can plainly see.
Overall, it was one of my favorite days of all time.
Have a fantastic week!
Jenny, Leo and Marcy
