We took the kids to the Salinas Mall 2 weeks ago to look at the Christmas decorations. Sure enough, Santa was ALREADY there (it wasn't even Thanksgiving yet!) & NOBODY was visiting him. Of course my kids begged & begged to say hello. Though Bladen screamed & cried as soon as he got close enough to talk to him, the girls had a blast. Santa's little elf gave each of the kids a fun Christmas hat. The kids loved it & they looked SO festive & cute in their new coats & Christmas hats.
