Santa took an extra day this year to deliver some Christmas Spirit. My cousin Yvette lives in the Ocala National Forest, only 3 miles from my boys' grandparents. Yvette's granddaughter Chloe is handicapped. Doctors said Chloe would never walk, talk or see. Well she fooled them all. This year Chloe was really into Santa so since she was coming to visit her Mimi in Florida, Santa just had to make a special visit.
This is probably one of my favorite pics of Santa. He's pretending he's animated in front of the house. Someone drove by while he was standing there.
Next stop was Yvette's house. Here we are walking in.
Chloe was sooooo excited that she had to get up and give Santa a hug. That's her mom, Katie, helping her. The little blonde at the bottom is Gabby, her sister.
This is Katie, Gabby and my cousin Yvette, watching Chloe and Santa converse.
Not to be left out, Gabby lets Mrs. C hold her.
Chloe with Santa and Mrs. C. Chloe wants to fill OUR stockings next year. She was full of all kinds of questions, like what's the elves favorite food, what do I fix for breakfast, what does Santa want in his stocking. She really made us think quick on our feet, lol. Chloe getting a snowglobe from Santa. Chloe loves snow globes and this one was squishy plastic, really neat, so it wouldn't break. Chloe also got wheel covers for her wheelchair that are really bright colors.We also had a surprise for Christmas. I haven't seen my brother's in 6 years (since my mom passed away). Well this is my older brother, Kevin, with my niece Carley. My brother Jimmy was also there, but he chose to stay outside. It was good to see them. My son Wade and his g-friend Erin went with us. It was good for Wade to see his uncles and cousin(who had no idea who we were). Thanks again, Erin for taking taking pictures (you too Wade)And of course we have to have Santa/animal pictures. This is Santa with Tootsie and Frank's dog Schottzy.And this is Cocoa with Santa. Cocoa is Chloe's dog that lives with Yvette.
