Yesterday, my friend Kelly and I were talking about how Bass Pro Shops has advertised having a Santa in their store, and maybe we should go. By that evening, we realized maybe we should go now before Thanksgiving, in case it's not as busy as it'll be after thanksgiving... and we did. And we were so glad. It was 7 pm last night (Santa's there from 5-8 pm daily), and there was no line!
Here's what the Santa set up looks like. He's the real deal, too. So sweet.
Here are Kelly's kids. Big kudos to that brave 3 year old who stood by Santa, even despite her fear.
As you can see, fear got the best of Chandler.
Then they told him their mile long list of toys... because, ya know, they don't really have any. ;)
And I think Santa knew the way to Chandler's heart, because he gave out candy. Chandler stood as far away as he could, and reeeaached for the candy.
So I thought I'd sit with Chandler...you can see how well that worked. I think it's funny how Chandler and Santa have the same expressions.
They had a truly Santa's workshop thing going on, complete with a train set, which had Chance mesmerized.
I think the ad said, "Make Thanksgiving Day a Nascar Race Day." LOL
Then the kids wrote letters to Santa. This one was taken by Heath, of William.
And sweet Elizabeth.
And this was my favorite shot of the night.
Thanks for joining us on the adventure, Jackson family!
