We finally took Allison to see Santa Claus tonight....as in for her to actually sit on his lap. She has been admiring him from a distance since he arrived at the local mall back in November.
She has been refining her response when asked "What would you like for Santa to bring you?" Besides the camping trip, Allison has now decided that she would like for Santa to bring her a baby doll. She was very excited when we told her late this afternoon that we were going to go see Santa so that she could tell him exactly what she would like.
Now, I was a little nervous. Allison's previous encounters with Santa have not been exactly pleasant. Tonight was different. I have to tell you it almost brought a tear to my eye to see her joy and excitement.
And my personal favorite (it just makes my heart MELT):
