Santa times 2

We saw Santa for the first time this week at the VFW children's Christmas party and she was a bit shy at first and then, once almost everyone had left, gave him a smooch and offered him a bite of her cookie. We saw Santa (busy guy this time of year!) again today at the Elk's children's Christmas party. Today, she was shy for less time and even offered him some candy cane and then had a conversation with him as we happily snapped photos! She is getting brave in her old age.
Semi-sad side note: When Santa had to leave today, she got teary eyed and said, "He gone?" and I told her he was going to go rest for his big trip this Friday night and he needed his rest in order to bring her lots of goodies. She seemed to accept that fact.

Rest up Santa! You've got a long week ahead!
