A Visit To See Santa

A couple weeks ago, I started mentioning Santa to Chase in hopes that he would get excited about Christmas. When he asks for something like Candy Land, or the "C" train, I say we'll have to ask Santa for it. He has been asking about Santa, where is he, what is he doing, etc., so this morning we wrote a letter to Santa and headed down to Macy's Santa Land to see Santa. I was in high spirits that Chase would like Santa this year; the last two years have been less then ideal - lots of crying, not wanting to sit on Santa's lap, etc. Let's just say, this year was probably worse then last - As soon as we got in line, he started to cry, yelling he wanted to go home, falling on the fall, the works. I should have known. Anyway, I was determined we were going to see Santa I figured after we walked through the winter wonderland and looked at the trains, the stuffed penguins and bears all would be well. We walked in to see Santa and Chase stayed in the stroller crying and asking to go home. On the plus side, Riley really enjoyed it and loved Santa. Here's to hoping next year will be better.
On the way home we stop by a Gingerbread House display at the Le Parker Meridien at least he enjoyed that.
The "5" trains was by far Chase's favorite

I love how Chase is so far away in the stroller! It must be the age. Keira asked to see Santa while we were at the mall this week. There was actually no line, and since you can just "visit" and not buy a photo, I figured why not? We walked through the little display fine and she totally didn't want anything to do with him. We are trying tomorrow with Ryan at dixboro.

Christmas is so much fun with kids! I love when they know who Santa is and what it all means. Cute pics of your kids.
