We went to visit Santa for the first time ever this month! I thought this would be a good year to try it out! She seems to be less afraid of costumed things and people lately, but it just depends on where and when it is! Plus, I decided that this was a more intimate experience and we'd go with our cousins so it would help her be less afraid. In October I found out that a local cookie shop holds an annual "Cookies and Milk with Santa" event so I knew that would be perfect for her! No mall Santa for us!
