Today we met Santa!!

>> Monday, 7 December 2009

No card today but a little story about our exciting day today in London to meet Santa.

Back in September my friend booked tickets for us to visit Santa in Harrods. Harrods' Santa is VERY popular, she went online at 7am on the day the tickets were released and by 7.30am the system had crashed from being overloaded. So we've been looking forward to today for a long time. Thomas was very excited to go on his first train ride and referred to all the trains he saw as Emily, James, Gordon etc - all characters from Thomas the Tank Engine, his favourite TV programme. We met with my sister at Waterloo and jumped in a taxi which took us past the Houses of Parliment and Buckingham Palace (just in time to see the changing of the guard) and then on to Harrods. We had a bit of spare time so took a look around their pet department. OMG, you would not believe the amount of bling you can buy for your pet!

After a rather expensive hot chocolate we joined the queue to see Santa. The theme this year is the Wizard of Oz - lots of green emeralds, models of the characters and I'll be singing 'Follow the Yellow Brick Road' for days to come. Finally we get to a big gold door with Santa waiting on the other side, it's time for Thomas to finally meet the big jolly man in his story books and .................



Yep, he fell asleep! All the build up and excitement was all too much and not even some gentle proding could rouse him. We will be teasing him about this picture in the years to come!

Hi Sharon,
Sounds as though you all had a great day out. It's just a pity the wee chap fell asleep before he saw Santa. He'll never live that down, but what a great photo to record the fact. Santa looks a million dollars.
Hugs,

It must have been all too much for him. At least you have a photo to remind Thomas of his day. Glad you enjoyed yourselves. Elaine

Aww how funny! At least you got a picture so you can show him what Santa looked like, and then tease him when he's older! Dulcie x
