After waiting patiently behind many children and babies, I finally had my chance to sit on Santa’s lap.

I knew this was the real Santa because when I got close enough to him, I pulled on his beard and confirmed it was real!

He also had a twinkle in his eye, a belly like a bowl full of jelly and a sack full of cute little toy dogs with Santa hats on them. I received a cute little stuffed dog because I’ve been nice all year…and rarely naughty ;-).
