We tried to go see Santa last week, but didn’t have enough time. So we decided to go today. Since the line and wait was so long last week, Brandon wanted me to go to the mall in the morning and get a number and then we would come back that night to see Santa.

This worked out GREAT! Allison, Brooke and I went to the mall, got our number, shopped some then ate lunch and then went home. After Brandon got off work, He, Brooke and I went to get in line. Since we had a number we only had to wait maybe 30-45 minutes.

We talked to Brooke about smiling at us for the camera, not being afraid of Santa and to not be shy and talk to him. Talking things through to her and explaining things to her works wonders! She is so smart and picks up on things quickly. The whole way to the mall she talked about how she would not cry and not be scared and tell Santa what she wanted for Christmas.

Right when it was our turn she got real clingy to me, and I thought this might not work. She gets real shy around people at first, so I was a little worried. But, I acted excited and talked her through it and she did awesome. She told Santa she wanted a pink bike. Brandon and I were so proud of her. She was so excited and so proud of herself as well. She cracks me up.
