A weekend of Santa.
So, Ryan has a SEVERE case of Stranger Danger.
Started when he was about 7 months old and has only gotten worse with age HA
I knew Santa could be rough given last years experience.
However, lately he has started to think Santa is pretty cool.
I was pleasantly surprised in our conversations this week with his response to these 3 questions I asked him each day,
"Are you excited to see Santa!?
Are you going to sit on his lap?
Are you going to tell him what you want for Christmas??"
He excitingly would say "YES!" to every question followed by "Santa nice, mommy"
( HAHA I clearly engrained in his head how "nice" Santa is )
He even woke up one morning and asked "Mommy, Santa lap today??"
I was beginning to think he had turned a new leaf.
We headed to "Kringles Corner" last Saturday night with high hopes of a happy 2 year old.
While we waited in line, Ryan couldn't get enough of the reindeer, trains, and Christmas Trees.
He watched as each child sat with Santa.
Aaron and I did our best to distract him when the screaming children got on board. HA
Santa even caught his eye and waved at him, Ryan waved back.
So many times he asked for a treat and I told him,
"If your a happy boy, as soon as you get off Santa's lap you can have a treat"
( Bribing at it's finest )
Oh the horror. ^
Such a sweet old man just taking our child's screaming like a champ.
Oh well. There's always next year.
Ryan was as happy as a clam.
"Treat" was the first thing he asked for.
^^ He even told Santa what he wanted for Christmas and left with a high five. ^^
At our ourdoor mall there is a "dancing tree" or so Ryan calls it.
The lights change to music and it's pretty incredible.
I felt like belting out "Oh Christmas Tree" while watching it.
^^ December nights are oh so magical! ^^
Ryan ordered all by himself and said "chocat, ice cream, pleeese"
( Chocolate - which by the way is totally from his dad, I'm Vanilla through and through )
Happy Tuesday! XO
