We were at Hillcrest yesterday for "Breakfast with Santa".  We had been counting down the days on your calendar, and as we were approaching the church building, you were practically yelping, "I'm sooooooo excited to have breakfast with Santa!!!"  The day before, you had asked us if ( the real )Santa was going to be there. We said something like, "Probably.. and if he can't make it, his helper would be there"

So we get there, and amazingly enough, there was not a single person in line to see Santa.  So we put down our coats and zoomed over there . ( Of course, a line formed IMMEDIATELY after that. )


You were a little in awe that er, Mrs. Claus knew your name, and at first, was a little shy at approaching Santa, but once on his lap, you were quite confident.

When we asked if you would like to tell Santa what you wanted for Christmas, you said, "A ball", which is kinda strange since we just got you one a couple of nights ago.  Of course, as we were leaving later, you said, "I need to tell Santa I changed my mind! I want a Pogo Stick instead, because I don't have one!".  Oh dear, how does one deal with such lamentations!

After running around a bit and going to the craft tables ( more on mummy's blog ), you noticed that Santa was walking out the door, and wondered where he was going, but waved goodbye to him anyway.  Then, you went over to the "Santa Station" and peeked behind the makeshift walls, and exclaimed, "Mummy, Santa left his sleigh behind!!"

We told you that we were sure he was coming back for it, and not to worry.

Then we went off to Petsmart to get a few things, AND SANTA WAS THERE TOO!

You were incredulous. We surmised that Santa had left because he needed to get some grub for his reindeer since they were his pets.
