My parents came with me for 'help' but really I think they just wanted to see the comedy first hand. Luckily we went in the morning and there was no line. Delaney saw Santa right away and he was a sweetie and waved at her. Then she got a bit nervous. Instantly, she grabbed Granddaddy's hand a her finger went in her mouth (but no ear plugging!!). Brody saw him too.... his look of concern was instant. He calls Santa "Ho Ho Ho" and he does it in a low voice that makes you smile.
"I not scared"
Brody: What the heck is that guy??
Hmmm...he seems okay.
We started the journey at the magical mailbox where they are able to throw their wishes into it and snow flies out at them. Delaney- not a fan and Brody got the shivers like we gave him a shot of tequila or something. Then they head over to the Naughty or Nice station and press the button. Delaney was worried....
Pressing the button. Ready to find out her fate.
Okay....am I naughty or nice today (she got nice:)
Then it was time. Time to meet the big guy. We strategically planned our attack. My dad would put Delaney down and my mom would put Brody down and I would snap the picture. Delaney was 'beary brave' and held onto to that big, fluffy man- who by the way, was the same man who pinched me last year! Anyway, Brody froze. His arms were out like 'somebody get me the heck outta here' and his mouth was open in shock. Delaney told Santa what they wanted and I quickly grabbed Brody before he had flipped out and slapped him. He looked at Santa and said, "Bye Guy" in his deep voice.
We finished off our mall adventure by looking at helicopters and cars and Brody got a ride on Granddaddy.
Waiting to see the pictures
