There is a mall 3 1/2 hours from home -- 40 minutes from the lake house we spend Thanksgiving at -- that has the best Santa ever. No, really. He pretty much is Santa. Which is precisely why there are three hour waits (we definitely stood in that line last year) and why, before heading back home to South Florida, we decided to get to the mall before it opened and get a spot in the Santa line. Ethan was really into Santa this year and looking forward to meeting him. He was a little shy but mostly really excited. He asked Santa for some blocks and a stuffed Piglet this year. If only his holiday wishlists always stay this practical and sweet!
Anyway, here are Ethan's Santa photos from this year!
Totally worth extending our vacation, driving totally out of the way and camping out in a line inside a closed mall, I don't care what you say.
The holidays are here!
