I wanted to capture on today's December Daily a visit with Santa Claus. Over the Thanksgiving holiday, I was with two of our grandchildren and I wanted to take them to see Santa. Brooklynn will be two in January and I was with her and her mama last year for her very 1st visit to Santa. Well, now she has a little brother, Bryson, and I wanted to be with him also on his very first meeting with the big guy in red. Bryson is now 8 months old and took to Santa right away. Now that Brooklynn is older, she was a bit scared of him. We coaxed and prodded to try to get her into his lap but to no avail. So Santa, being the wonderful jolly ole man that he is, suggested that he go into his 'house' and that I could sit in his seat with the two children and get our photo taken in Santa's chair. What a great idea. Except that I really wanted 'him' in the photos. Little did Brooklynn (or I) know, that once we were seated, Santa came back out and stood behind the chair so that he was in the pictures. Brooklynn never even knew that he was there.
While I was paying for the photos, Brooklynn warmed up enough to Santa that she was waving to him and blowing him kisses. When we went to leave, she even wanted to give him a kiss on the cheek. She still didn't want to sit in him lap but she had made big strides. Maybe next year.
