Right Place at the Right Time
We saw Santa Claus yesterday.
He left the land of perpetual snow earlier in the week and was heading to Florida for a few days of rest and relaxation. He stopped in a local restaurant to grab him something to eat.
During Christmas time he wears his famous red velvety outfit. In the summertime he wears shorts and sandals.
Our little Taylor recognized him before we did. She saw him as soon as he and Mrs. Claus walked in the door. I was surprised he didn’t use the chimney. Taylor got him to come over to our table so she could talk to him and give him a hug. She feels fairly confident she got a head start on all the other little boys and girls who will have to wait to see him when he shows up at the local mall a few weeks before Christmas.
Talk about being at the right place at the right time.
I overheard part of the conversation Santa had with Taylor. He was asking her if she has been a good little girl. Of course she explained to him she has been mostly perfect.
Santa is planning on taking a few days off and then he will be heading back to the North Pole to join his elves in his workshop. He has a lot of work to do between now and Christmas.
But Santa sure did make one little girl happy yesterday.
