We took Gage and Chloe to see the Christmas lights around town. There is a road they call Candy Cane Lane where all houses are decorated. There is a gentleman at the end of the road who dresses up like Santa a few nights during the Christmas season and let’s you take photos and hands out small toys. He was not out this said night which started the following conversation with Gage (my 4 year old step-son).
Gage: “Daddy, can we go see Santa.”
Mitchell: “Santa isn’t home.”
Gage: “Where is he?”
Me: “I guess he’s up at the North Pole making toys.”
Gage: “Oh, when will he be back?”
Me: “I don’t know. We’ll check next weekend.”
Gage: “Do you think we could just sneak in and see if Santa is home or not.”
Me: “No baby, we can’t break in Santa’s house.”
By this time Mitchell and I can barely breathe we are laughing so hard. Gage was being so sweet and innocent about it.
