not sure what to make of the dude with a beard
Last week we put Tavi in her Christmas dress and ventured to the mall for a visit to Santa's village. We were fully prepared for Tavi to hate Santa, I pictured a screaming, crying child terrified of the man in red so we planned accordingly. We went mid-week, mid-afternoon when the mall wouldn't be busy and planned on making a quick exit.
When we got to the mall and placed Tavi on Santa's knee it looked like the above scenario was about to happen. But then Tavi noticed Santa's beard and she was completely fascinated. Her little hand kept reaching out and grabbing at it! Thankfully she didn't yank it off and we got a decent picture of Tavi on Santa's knee. A couple of the out-take photos were hilarious, Tavi was staring up at Santa, her hand tangled in his beard. She really didn't know what to think of that cascading wall of curls!
After pictures we went around to the back of Santa's village, where there was an area for kids to play in. We helped Tavi down the slide, let her crawl by the igloos but mainly let her watch the older kids play. She had a blast!
