Lauren had a very special visitor this past Friday, Santa Claus!
Lauren has been sick with the flu and colds since November and missed out on her regular visit to Santa at the shopping mall this year. We were a little sad but had come to terms with the idea that we may miss out on a family picture with Santa this year. Lauren was just too exhausted and sick to take out into an overcrowded mall.
As luck may have it, my good friend Ara had some very special connections with the jolly man himself and was able to arrange an exclusive visit for Lauren with Santa just after the holidays (as we all know Christmas is a pretty busy time for Santa).
Lauren shared her wishes with him, and was very pleased to be one of the first kids in 2014 to get to sit in Santa’s Lap. It was a perfect moment, Lauren was calm, happy and alert.
A shopping mall Santa visit couldn’t even come close to how special this moment was, a memory that our family will hold tight.
