Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Yesterday we went with Grandma Sue and Papa to the South Barrington Park District to watch Santa Claus arrive...in a HELICOPTER!

We hadn't told Levi what we were doing, just that we were going to see a surprise. He didn't seem to pick up on all the other kids and parents talking about Santa around us.

It was the coldest day we've had so far this season so we bundled up for the wait outside. Lill stayed inside with Grandma.


After circling overhead a few times, Santa made his way down to the field.


He arrived in a red helicopter, no less. How festive!


Despite the serious look on his face in this shot, he was very excited.


Here's Santa!


Once he made his way over to the crowd, he was mobbed by all the kids, but Santa took his time to say hello to each of them, shaking Levi's hand. That got him smiling!


After that, we headed back to Grandma and Papa's to decorate their Christmas tree. I'll share pictures of that later this week. Levi has yet to visit Santa to tell him what he wants, but I think we'll probably fit that in next weekend.
