Dinner with Santa at church. I contemplated not going, Jeremy is out of town, I had to take all three girls to Abby’s swim lesson, it was close to the younger two’s bedtime but I’m glad we went. Mia was so excited to see Santa at dinner … as long as he didn’t get too close. She loved when he read a book about the real meaning of Christmas but she wasn’t sure about a picture [as you can see]. Ella and Abby had a good time talking to Santa and liked listening to his story. Abby was relieved when I said she didn’t have to sit on his lap, she could just stand next to Santa. An improvement from last year when she hid behind Mia’s stroller and said “Santa can check my Amazon wishlist”.
