Getting ready for the man in red.

We recently took Cullen and Simone to brunch with Santa.  The two kids were so sweet as they spent the morning thinking about their lists.  I dressed them up in festive Christmas red and we were off.  They diligently carried their lists from the car to the brunch.  As we entered the room, Cullen noticed that Santa was not there.  I told him that Santa would be arriving shortly and he kept his eyes glued to the door for the next 10 minutes.  Finally, the man in red and his wife arrived.  Cullen and Simone kept him in their sight as they scarfed down waffles, bacon, eggs and fruit.  Finally, we crossed the room to talk to Santa and convince him that they had been "nice".  Simone is still a little unsure about as to how comfortable she is in close proximity with Santa.  Cullen, on the other hand, ran right up to the sleigh and jumped in Santa's lap.  There is nothing that can outdo the sight of a little one who truly believes.
