A huge thanks to my friend April for setting up this VIP Santa visit at BLACKLION in Pineville! You may remember last year she took Camille all over Charlotte in search of the perfect Santa and when she found him at BLACKLION she let me in on the secret and also told me to bring some mama friends along too! Everyone had so much fun! Most of the kiddos met Santa for the first time and were definitely spoiled by the best Santa experience ever. Upon arrival we were greeted by singing bears right outside of Santa's Workshop. Caroline was so fascinated.
Not sure if it was Santa that had Caroline on high alert or the Gingerbread Man or Frosty the Snowman. Regardless, they made one heck of an entrance singing, dancing and ringing the bells. And I cannot say enough great things about this Santa! He was jolly, sweet and had the best time meeting our littles. It was like he really came straight from the North Pole. Oh, and he has a ponytail which makes him extra cool.
After Santa introduced himself to all the little ones he welcomed us to his workshop where there were so many fun displays -- Santa's mailbox, tons of wrapped gifts, reindeer, elves, etc. It was sensory overload for all the minis and they were running around having a blast!
