Friday night, to get into the holiday spirit, we went to the Denver Zoo to check out Zoo Lights. Since we have been a few times in the past, we know to bundle up. I had hoped we would be able to see Santa, since the boys missed out on that last year. Lucky for us, the line wasn’t very long at all.
Once Elijah & Miles were done sharing with Santa what they wanted, we started to move on to allow the next kid in line to speak to the Man in Red. Elijah turned back and asked Santa, “Are you God’s helper?” Santa, paused and smiled, answering “yes, I am. Sometimes I’m even considered a Saint.”
Elijah shared with him, “I know that Christmas isn’t about getting, it’s about giving”.
Santa smiled bigger, saying, “yes, that’s why I give presents.”
Geoff & I were left feeling pretty proud of our little boy. 🙂
He's quite the kid. Nana and Grampy are proud too!
That is so sweet. It sounds like you are showing him the spirit of Christmas.
