Our first adventure with Santa was downtown Hope at the Chamber. I was a little anxious for Darby Kate's reaction, because we had seen Santa earlier in the month -- and she was NOT excited to be near him. BUT, of course -- I was hoping for the perfect picture with Santa regardless. The set up for the room was a little crazy, but the craziness kept her occupied as we waited. The cookies helped, too. She enjoyed seeing all the people -- as for Santa and Mrs. Claus -- well,...................maybe next year.
