This morning we went to the shopping centre where Craig works to see Santa's arrival / parade. Clay has shown interest in Santa this year - pointing him out on TV ads and even approaching him and waving at the shops. This is a huge improvement to last year, when he would see Santa and start yelling "no no no" and try to get away from him.
He really enjoyed the parade (apart from a drum band - too loud / noisy for him) and was excited to see Santa :)
It's not the best angle / pic, but I love the expression of awe on Clay's face as Santa gave him a high 5 ❤
Hopefully all these positive interactions with Santa will lead to a happier / less traumatizing Santa photo this year - fingers crossed!!!!
