Today I spent some time reflecting on the all the excitement buzzing around the studio the when Santa arrived. I think I was just as excited as the children, wondering if they made the list, waiting to hear what Santa thought about their list and stepping back to watch the parents and grandparents welling up with pride and anticipation with their babies....
Every kid that came in for the Santa Experience was a little bit nervous. I told every Mom and Dad, that I asked Santa to bring the Nice list. Every kid knew it would be here. Would their name be on it? Will they have to settle for a lump of coal? Jefferson was no different. Santa told him that him and the elves were kind of on the fence and didn't know if he made the list this year. Santa asked him what did he do this year that made him deserving of being on his most precious nice list. He said that he cleaned his room without being asked, and did his homework and said Yes Ma'am and Yes Sir. Santa seemed satisfied. But told him that he knew that he didn't always put his things where they go and sometimes he had to be asked more than once to do things. He said everything counts. He checked his list twice and Jefferson found his name.
What do you do when you make the nice list? You shoot a couple of thumbs to Dad. This kid is pretty darn fantastic.
So what is the Santa Experience?
