Josh once said to me that life goes downhill from the moment that you find out that Santa isn't real. And it's true. Because it is, at that moment when the sad truth is revealed, that you realize that the world isn't quite as good as you once thought it was.
There is something so amazing about watching kids experience the magic of Santa. And not just the magic of the story itself, but the belief that they have that the world is so good that someone life Santa could truly exist. It is truly an extraordinary thing to witness.
This year, we were lucky enough to have Santa visit Myra's school. He arrived on a fire truck, which she still talks about every single day (this was on December 3rd). She didn't want to sit on his lap, but loved sitting next to him and talking his ear off. She told him that she wanted a bike, which I am pretty sure that he is going to bring for her. ;)
Here are a few photos from the event! How sweet are they?!
How much do you love that she is pointing her finger while talking?!
Making sure that she tells him everything that she wants.
