friday we took the little Bird on a train.
we wanted her to experience the magic and excitement that comes with Christmas in the city.
lunch under the big tree in the Walnut Room:
a visit with Santa:
(can you sense the nervousness here? Santa was very astute and after a few seconds of friendly chat, he said to the Bird, "Now I've seen those times when you weren't behaving your best. We know that's not how you want to be, so you're going to have to do better." eeeeeeeekkkk!!! you could cut the tension with a knife.)
