Well, all four girls made it onto Santa's lap. Santa and Mrs. Claus made a guest appearance at our ward party, much to the excitement of all. They were actually there at the very beginning of the party making it much less intimidating than the whole entrance Santa often makes. Before we went to the church Ellie was nervous. She told me she would sit on Santa's lap if he was just one of Santa's helpers, but if it was the real Santa she would be too scared.
When all was said and done, I asked each of the girls quietly if they thought that the Santa who came to the party was in fact the real Santa, and not surprisingly, Becca thought it was and Ellie was quite sure he was just someone dressed like Santa. At age 2, Ellie identified Greg when he dressed up like Santa, and she recognized my dad's voice when he tried to impersonate an elf on the phone. Let's just say her little logical brain is not easily deceived.
