I’m having to get used to using that term having grown up with Father Christmas… but I have to admit it’s easier for Hayden to say and understand. Last year when Hayden met Santa Claus it was quite an event (to be fair to Santa he had the same reaction to the Easter bunny!) Can’t resist showing the picture again:
This year was very different. We had “Cookies With Santa” within our neighbourhood at the local primary school. When Santa turned up Hayden was really excited and rounnign around in circles. Then like a really good boy he lined up behind the other kids and waited his turn to sit on Santa. Once up there he sat up on Santa’s knee and even told him what he wanted! (an Orange race car apparently!!) I was really impressed because often he just goes quite in situations like this. He even managed a Dr Evil impression for the picture!!
When Santa was leaving Hayden was in the perfect place in the room and got an extra high five from Santa. He face lit up like a proverbial Christmas tree! It was very sweet!
