We have taken Haleigh to see Santa a few times. The first time was before Thanksgiving, we were just at the mall and didn't expect to see Santa, but he was there and all the kids wanted to talk to him. Haleigh sat in the stroller and did not cry, she took her book he gave her and waved good bye to him. This made me think, we needed to have Santa pictures made, because they would be really good since she was not scared. So the week after thanksgiving we took them to the bass pro shop to have Santa pictures made. Haleigh would not get down, would not talk to him, would not wave! We got their free offer picture of none of the kids looking and Madalyn holding an upset Haleigh. Then we went to a family Christmas party, Santa showed up and as soon as he walked in the door, Haleigh starts screaming like someone was hurting her, it was crazy, but by the time he was going she had waved a few times. This past weekend we went to the Shriners Christmas party for kids they have helped this year. They sent me a invite in the mail in October, we RSVP in November. They fed us lunch and had a DJ playing Christmas songs and other children's songs. Haleigh no plays Head, Sholders, Knees, and Toes all day long! The Shriners are so so nice. The bought Haleigh a gift, a peek a boo baby, she loves it. I think that is going to be it in Santa visits, although Haleigh was not scared at all at the Shriners party.
