Searching Out Santa

It’s an annual tradition in our family to head to Santa’s Village to see Santa. We like to go early in the season to avoid the crowds and to give Santa plenty of time to get those gifts made. The big kids were over the moon excited to see Santa this year which was a lot of fun. And Hadley didn’t seem to mind him either!



James wouldn’t sit on Santa’s lap but he gave him a fist bump!

We were the first in line to see Santa and went to explore the rest of the village after we’d met the big guy. Charlotte wrote out her Christmas list and then stuck it in Santa’s mailbox.

(If you can’t read it she asked for art storage, a dolphin baby, a Santa baby, and a Rudolph baby. I’m happy to say that Santa came through on all of those requests.)

The kids were mesmerized watching the trains and loved seeing the singing and dancing penguins.

And Hadley was just happy to be there and that it was warm enough that she wasn’t all bundled up in her jacket!

We ended our Santa’s Village night with our traditional feast at Commerce Kitchen.
