A visit with Santa (aka Hoho)

The Good
The Bad

and The Ugly!
I actually was surprised at how well this went, after waiting an hour in line! This is at Town Square on Saturdays and is free if you take your own picture. So EVERYONE is there. We were there 20 minutes early and still had to wait an hour, it started at noon...lunchtime! Abby usually doesn't take to kindly to strangers and is even worse when it comes to dressed up characters. So I was pleasantly surprised when she hopped onto Hoho's lap and told him what she wanted for Christmas! It is, coincidentally a Mermaid. I think Hoho may have to go last minute shopping for a Little Mermaid instead of the Twirl and sing Dora Mermaid, which is already packed in his sack! Maybe they should do the Santa thing in November!

That is so funny! Save that last picture to show her when her kids don't want to sit on Santa's lap! Very cute post!

you are soo lucky it went better on your end...our experience was much different. We got there at 3:30pm and only waited ten minutes. BUT, Amelia was terrified of Santa! Oh well, better luck next year! Enjoyed dinner with ya'll last evening!!

I love that she calls him "hoho"

That is too funny you are going to have to switch up the gifts in accordance with what she told "hoho"

I love how they come up with their own names for people/characters..Hoho! I've not tried to take Noah and Kendall to see him for fear it won't be as great a success as yours!

The girls did great! All you hope for is at least one good picture, right? Can't wait to see you one day. We are so tired of having fevers!!!

Oh that last picture is priceless! What a classic.
Some day she will get quite a chuckle out of that one.
