We met Santa Saturday morning. Once a year the physicians in my practice host a Christmas brunch for families. Complete with delicious food, crafts, cookie decorating and a visit from Santa.
This Santa was exceptional in that he took a little time to really talk to the kids.
Boy was impressed by his "big black boots" and was very curious as to whether the reindeer and sleigh were on the roof. Santa let him know that he rode the Polar Express for this quick visit and would be off that evening to run things in the North Pole.
Boy told him that the Shelf Elf was at our house and that "I don't ever touch him".
Bluebird had a few sassy replies but I was not clear on what she was saying exactly.
A giant robot ("how big, as big as you?" I said. He said "No, not this big, shorter, I want a short robot.")
A garbage truck
A Shark Toy
Wishes for boy from mom:
5T pants, not jeans
Long sleeve t-shirts (he hates long sleeves, but needs them)
Princess Dresses (or any fun dress up clothing)
Skateboard (mom says "not this year")
Wishes for Bluebird from Mom:
A tea set
Anything cute and girly for her room
She had no individual requests.
Wishes for Buttercup from Mom:

Silhouettes of all children (the real deal, not decals)
A pair of boots from Steve Madden
White dishes and serving ware. (I really need a gravy boat)
