Santa's Munchkin

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.

One of my friends that I work with has a 5 year old daughter and she asked this Santa if he was the real one. Santa told her that Santa has lots of helpers and he was one of them. She got down off of Santa's lap and told her mom he was the REAL Santa---she could tell. Jana said the look on her face was priceless. She still believes. This guy has been the Santa at Oak Park for years. You can see why. He IS the real Santa!!! Loved the picture. Love you, Auntie Kathy
