We saw Santa yesterday!
My Aunt text me yesterday afternoon that she was running the train at an area mall in their Christmas display. So after Elinore woke from her nap yesterday afternoon we headed to the mall to ride a train.
Keith was at a friends helping them with some computer stuff, but was able to meet us there too, so that was a nice surprise!
The kids and I rode the train three times. (It pays to know the operator!) And we hopped over and visited Santa and had pictures taken with Santa too! Bonus for being so early in the year to see Santa; there was no line!
Caden asked Santa for fake snow. Caleb asked for an iPad. (Santa said his elves don't make those and they have to check with parents on getting those!) Elinore asked for a restaurant and a car.
Ruth cried a little while on Santa's lap, then the photographer distracted her. Then the distraction ended and crying started again, but we got a great Santa photo of the kids this year!
