The Schwartz's vs Meeting Santa

Sarah's never met Santa.  I'm not anti-Santa.  But I'm not overly Santa.  At this point she's too young to get it so I still have some time to decide on how much of a roll Santa will play.  But we didn't take her to meet Santa last year because we took her to Disney World and given the choice, I'd much rather meet the mouse!

Really, I just don't want to go wait in the line at the mall.  I know you can meet Santa at Bass Pro, but when we tried that there was a 2 hour wait!  We thought she's meet Santa at Zoo Lights but that didn't happen.  So I was really thankful that the chiropractor I go to is so family friendly because he had a Meet and Greet with Santa.

I couldn't wait to see how she reacted and I'll tell you it was a little anti-climatic.  Santa was upstairs in the physical therapy area where Sarah plays while I do my PT so she was completely in her comfort zone.  She sees some new dude up there and just walked right up to him like it wasn't a big deal.  He reached out and she let him pick her up and put her on his lap.  Sarah really doesn't know a stranger.  She sat there pleasantly even though she wouldn't look so we could get a decent picture of her smiling.  She didn't really get the concept of what to talk to him about but she said hi and thank you when he gave her a candy cane.  (That we promptly took away before she could figure out that it was edible.)

It was nice that she didn't scream and cry and I'm glad she finally got the chance to meet Santa.

(Even Cody won't cooperate and look at the camera.  Oi vey!)
