Tonight we took Michael and Katie to see Santa at the mall. When we arrived there, we realized that we had once again gone on "pet night". Every Monday night in December until Christmas, you are allowed to bring your pet to the mall so that he or she can visit with Santa. Some of these pets are dressed better than the kids there! One good thing about going on pet night is that the pets don't take nearly as long to tell Santa what they want. We were about the 8th or 9th customer in line but I think Michael and Katie were the first kids to see Santa that night. We usually try to get there right when Santa gets back from dinner to minimize the wait.
This year was the first year that both kids were excited to see Santa. They couldn't wait to tell him what they wanted. Michael's list had 4 things and Katie asked for 3 things. The picture wasn't the best but we are going more for the experience of seeing Santa.
