Santa Claus Came to Town

My work had their children’s Christmas party on Saturday afternoon. I’m pretty sure I was the most excited out of the three of us to go. Baby Bird dressed up in her pretty red dress and we bundled her up and braved the -35C to see Santa.

There were a lot of kids running around when we got there and Baby Bird sat quietly in our arms while she observed her surroundings. We registered, took our coats off and got settled. Once we were there for a few minutes, she started to enjoy everything.

Here, Baby and Papa Bird are waiting in line to see Santa. She didn’t quite know what was happening, but she was happy to see all of the kids and adults there.

Here is Baby Bird standing in line. We were only a few kids away from meeting Santa and it was her first real glimpse of him. I think she was sizing him up.

Then showtime! Baby Bird was not sure what to do, so at first she sat there holding her hands. She didn’t cry, she wasn’t afraid, she just didn’t know what to do. Then Santa tried to lift her cheeks into a smile and she giggled and it was all good.

Baby Bird got a Christmas gift and a cookie from Santa and we found a seat so that she could open it. Santa is such a smart man. He knows exactly what all of the kids want. She received a little baby doll and she loves it.

She even tried to share her cookie with the doll. Afterwards, she also tried to share her milk and soother with it, and today she was pulling the doll around in a basket.

We headed upstairs to walk around. There were some games set up for all of the kids on the second level and we came across a bowling area that was quiet. Baby Bird had fun playing until other kids came along and she had to let someone else have a turn.

After the walk and game we went back to our cafeteria for a snack and Baby Bird had her first juice box along with her snacks.
Papa Bird told me that when I went upstairs to get our coats, Baby Bird started dancing to some Christmas music, and by the end of the day she was wandering all over the place having the time of her life. She went up to Santa to say goodbye and blew him a kiss. She really didn’t want to leave at the end but gave in pretty easily as she was tired and worn out from a day of fun.
