A couple of weeks ago we ventured out to the mall so that Samuel could have his first experience visiting with Santa. I was expecting bawling and desperate attempts of reaching out for me while Sam was in Santa's lap, but instead there was silence. Samuel waved to Santa as I sat him down on his lap and Sam just stared. Santa's Elves were snapping pictures trying to get one of Sam smiling; however there were only nervous stares coming back their way. Then I saw the perfect moment, Samuel was gazing up at Santa and Santa was shooting Samuel a smile back letting him know everything was alright. This wasn't a cheap looking Santa but one who looked like the real deal, the one all children dream about. He had a real long white beard, glasses, and the warmest most friendliest face. It was so cute so I wanted to share that picture with everyone.
