Mall Santa Claus

While bouncing from store-to-store at the mall this morning, I stopped for a moment to watch the little children all dressed up in their Christmas best to tell Santa what they wanted for Christmas. Oh, my heart melted. They were all so adorable. You could see the anticipation and the wonder in their eyes. Then as they inched closer, you could see the apprehension and the question on their face. As they approached Santa for the magical moment you could see the terror and the fear. Poor souls. Most braved it and took the chance that this jolly old elf wouldn't hurt them and would indeed make all their wishes come true.
I took care in not getting a child's face in the photo. I value privacy for children. But sweet...be still my beating heart...they are priceless!
