We have set an unintentional tradition by visiting the same place to see Santa each year. I think this year is our fourth year of visiting the local garden centre to see the big man himself. It’s amazing to see how 7yo has changed from year
We love seeing the reindeer and always make a beeline for them first. Today we arrived as they were being fed so they were up and near the fence which was nice to see, if a little smelly!
We were lucky enough to be first in the queue for our time slot so made our way slowly through the grotto looking at all the animals and twinkly lights. As we had no-one in front of us we were able to stop for photos along the way.
7yo and Santa had a good chat about what she would like for Christmas, even though she forgot when he first asked! None of us were really sure if she deserved a small gift now before the big day itself or not, but thankfully he thought she had been good enough. I do think it was a close call though.
I think it’s safe to say she was happy with the gift she received.
