We visited Santa tonight!
The town I grew up in has a little house that Santa sits in to greet the kids. I used to go as a child, and we've taken our kids every year since Dylan was born!
When we got into line, Santa was just heading into his house. He began walking toward Dylan, who immediately began waving, and saying, "Hi, Santa! Hi, Santa!" Santa greeted him before heading into the house, which made Dylan's day!
We only waited for about 10 minutes, but it felt like an eternity. The line to get in is outdoors, and the temperature was hovering around 20 degrees. It. Was. Cold.
The kids were thrilled when we finally made it up to the porch!
The wait was worth it! They were super excited to see Santa, and listened intently to everything he had to say.
Dylan asked for Legos and MegaBlocks, and Lexie asked for a dollhouse. After promising to behave, and go to bed early on Christmas Eve, their visit with Santa ended.
They thanked Santa, wished him a Merry Christmas, and exited his house with candy and coloring books.
Dylan and Lexie are eagerly awaiting his arrival on Christmas Eve!
