A Visit with Santa

We went to Uptown Shelby tonight to see Santa. We've done this for the past 3 years & it's so much fun. They have a Santa house every Friday night before Christmas in Dec. and they offer lots of games & activities for kids, horse carriage rides (we've never done that), Christmas music, free hot chocolate and the court square is decorated so pretty with lots of lights in the trees. We got there at 5:10 and stood in line until 7:45 to see Santa. Yes, it's ridiculous when you can go to the mall and spend about 15 min... if that much... from start to finish. But, I really didn't mind it. I was freezing and my big toe was numb, but we knew plenty of people in line around us and the atmosphere is great. The boys always look forward to this. I wasn't sure how Kensley would be, but she didn't care too much for Santa (as you can see from the picture). She didn't mind looking at him or him talking to her, she just didn't want to sit near him. The boys asked for their video game and a bunch of other stuff I've never heard before and we were on our merry way.
