Visit With Cowboy Kringle

This year, Christmas crept up and bit me in the...well, lets just say I am not nearly as prepared as I would like! So much to do and not enough hours in the day to complete all my 'to dos'. (Thank goodness finals -for me- are over with)

Also, this year my daughter (8 yrs) has been debating whether she believes in Santa or not. She wouldn't even get a picture done because of this.  I am heartsick that she is questioning this so young (or am I being a little neurotic about it). Sigh - they grow up so quickly it's a little scary!

So I took the kids to visit Cowboy Kringle last weekend and my son was over the moon to be visiting Santa. My daughter, not so much. "Do I have to see him?" she asks, "I don't know...don't want to get my picture taken." Crestfallen, I told her "No, it's you choice."

Waiting in line was brutal because of the weather ~ COLD!  But it was will worth it when it was our turn! I wish I had a picture of her face when she saw Cowboy Kringle!   She looked at him and then looked at me and had the biggest smile on her face!

I didn't say a word but...

She walked right up sat in Santa's lap, took and picture, and even talked to him. (for her that's awesome)

As we were walking back to the car, she looked up at be and said "Now that's a real Santa....I Believe in him"! (I was so happy I almost started to cry)

Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!
