A special visitor...

Every Christmas Eve since Hadlea was born, we have had a special visit from Santa. We are VERY lucky to have a 'Santa' in the family.
My dad Santa has came around our house since I was very young. I don't have too many Christmas memories without seeing Santa. Although looking back, I wonder why we didn't think it was weird that Santa was in our Christmas pictures but my dad wasn't?! ;-) I remember finding 'THE' suit in my mom's closet one year, and they told me my dad was 'special' and was a helper. I bought it for a while. Then, dad told me I could be a helper too... and I became his elf. Going to different events with him. Christmas time has always been such a special time getting to see my dad make other families Christmas' so special! We used to go from house to house on Christmas Eve doing visits and dropping off presents. Some of the houses he would do in the middle of the night... even purposely making enough noise to wake up the kids so they would find him delivering the presents! Oh the stories he has...  He is one AWESOME Santa!

And just a little reminiscing of Hadlea's last few years of visits from him....

That is so special! Isn't it funny the stuff you didn't realize as a child that seems painfully obvious as an adult? That's why I love kids! Hope you all had a merry Christmas!
