I love the look of joy and excitement on my childrens' faces when they see Santa. Every year we go downtown to visit with Santa in his special house. This year we managed a Trolley ride through town with Santa before we actually talked to him! He even gave each one of the kids a ticket to get a piece of chocolate from the nearby South Bend Chocolate Factory. Nicholas even warmed up to the jolly old elf this year. Although he wouldn't sit on his lap, he made his wishes known and he didn't cry. His requests are simple: a firetruck and cars that crash. Hannah wants a scooter. Riley wants anything Harry Potter. Get movin Santa!
