Some other moments from visiting Santa:
I'll end on a good note: Trotter high fiving Santa Claus. He jibber jabbered at him the whole time, and except for not wanting to sit on his lap, Trot seemed rather fond of the guy while we were there. I'm honestly amazed we got one picture where he was looking at the camera and not craning his neck in a way that would have crippled a lesser child just to take a peek at Mr. Kringle.
As an adult, we tend to lose sight of how special Christmas really is: all the hype and commercialism makes me weak in the knees.
Viewing Christmas through the eyes of a child?
It's like you get to be 4 years old all over again.
