the best day {part 2}

he waved.

that did it. with sweaty palms and a beating heart she said yes. with some triumph, we made our way down.

Santa was very smart and asked us a bunch of grammar questions {true story}. there was also a lengthy conversation about m&m's and "his job." we then proceeded to stand one on each side to have the photo snapped.

"uh-un. we're gonna do this right. sit right here."

so like two little kids we climbed on each knee. we must have been covering his face because he exclaimed playfully: "wait a second. i'm the star of this show... you can't be covering me up."

finally arranged, the big flash came and the picture was snapped. saying our goodbye and thanks to santa, we each got our free copy from the elf-kids and practically skipped outta there.

a plan was made and the surprise was sprung at supper to the unsuspecting family that night.

"we met a verrrry famous person today."

the picture was presented and lots of laughs and questions followed.

{and so ended one of the best days. ever.}
