Santa Claus Is Coming To Town!

We took Eli to see Santa on Saturday. We got there about 10 minutes before they opened and we were third in line, which I was so excited about! We tried to prepare Eli for Santa this year by reading books about Santa and showing him the picture of him with Santa from last year. I was a little worried that seeing Santa in person would be a much different experience, but he did pretty good.
Eli waiting patiently to see Santa!

The big Polar Express setup for the line to see Santa.

Santa got there a few minutes early and greeted the few of us in line...so nice!!! Eli got to shake his hand, but was more excited about looking at Santa than touching him.

Eli loved all the decorations we walked through while in line. I highly recommend the set up they have at Willow Bend.

Not sure what to think about the fake snow.

The front of the Polar Express. This was inside a snow globe and they had snow falling from the ceiling!

Here is Eli with Santa last year. He had no idea what was going on. :)
Eli wanted to get down as soon as we put him on Santa's lap, but the girls taking the picture got him to sit still and smile. The pant legs drive me crazy but overall the picture is great! Doesn't the Santa look authentic??

Here is Eli waiting for his pictures afterward with his Polar Express brochure he got from Santa. He is flirting with the little girls standing next to him!

Your pic is perfect! Wow, he did so well! I'm debating on Santa this year. Ian didn't do too well last year.

Wow...he has grown so much! And if you hadn't mentioned the pant legs, I would never have noticed. What mommas see versus what everyone else sees...LOL!

BTW, have been wanting to tell you how beautiful you look pregnant. You carry it so well!
