As silly as it seems, I made an appointment for the girls with Santa. It's the first year that I have ever done this. The Santa at Phipps is very popular and you can only see him with an appointment. They just opened up yesterday for appointments. Every weekend is booked solid. I was able to get one on 12/23. I'm excited. This Santa is beautiful. I know it's odd to call Santa beautiful, but he really is. The other really cool thing is they do a video of your visit with Santa. Appointments are 15 minutes long. Santa wears a microphone so you get to hear what he is saying. Too cool. Here's the link.
