"Here Comes Santa Claus..."





-->
“Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells…”
Last week a friend called and asked if I would like to go
Christmas shopping with her and then out to lunch so off
we went to the
Vista Ridge Mall
in the city of Lewisville.
There we found...

-->
Santa Claus…


Did you know there are Santa Schools??  In order to be Santa, one must attend. :) This lovely
gentleman began his time as Santa following a visit to a school in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Even with  having finished our decorating
for Christmas at home
I still wasn't feeling too Christmassy,
until this wonder happened.
A little Christmas magic...

"Santa" and his gentle and genuine love for children
spending just a few minutes with this little girl
making her a holiday crown
and how happy she was upon receiving it
the wonderment on her bright and earnest face
helped make this season
a little brighter.

In all the hectic craziness of the holiday season
we are often so stressed that we need a reason to remember
why we are doing all of this shopping and decorating
in the first place.

I'd kinda lost my Christmas spirit...



This little girl was finding hers...

Taking a few moments to stand and watch
your children, your grandchildren or in this case
a stranger's child meeting someone so beloved and
standing in as a messenger of
Love and Hope
from Above
sometimes is just what is needed.





 Capturing her joy  and being able to snap a
few photos for her grandmother to send to her parents
was a great gift...
:)

{Peggy insisted I get a photo with Santa.}


I took this photo of Peggy visiting with Santa's Helper and Santa just before our youngster arrived.

She decided not to, however, we all enjoyed this merry time!



Have you visited Santa yet this year??
Are you in need of a little bah humbug removal?

Our view as we came into Vista Ridge Mall ~ a player piano merrily playing holiday tunes!


"Happy Christmas to you!"
