After much deliberation, we decided it was time to take Lucas to see Santa Claus. Lucky for us, Santa had taken up temporary residence in Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek. So two nights before Christmas, we all stormed Santa's house to wait for the little guy to go face to face with the big guy.
Lucas was a little tentative at first, but went ahead and sat on Santa's lap. SC asked what Lucas wanted. Lucas said, "A train that makes noise." The photographer snapped away and we got a nice picture. Lucas hopped off Santa's lap and Santa said, "I have a little gift for you."
Imagine Lucas' horror when Santa pulled out a little Christmas book. "Where is my train?" he cried once we had been ushered to the side of Santa's room. After all the build-up, talking about how Santa would bring him presents, and all he got was a book, Lucas was disappointed to say the least.
