I think this Santa was the real deal...


Today Annabel's class took a field trip to see Santa at our local mall. Annabel was the first one in her class to have her picture with Santa. I think Santa knew she was something special because he let us take about a zillion pictures of her with him before their photographer snapped theirs. I am not sure I have ever seen a sweeter Santa. There are many more with him just looking and smiling right into her sweet eyes. Upon giving Annabel back to us he was wiping a tear from his eye. He then replied "she is such a precious little girl." Yes, I do think in that very short time she stole Santa's heart.

Giving Santa her Christmas list...

I think he told her a funny story...



Annabel and her teacher, Ms. Ann

Christmas Wishes and Smiles to all...

Oh Kathy, these pictures are just the most precious and heart moving things. I do believe in my heart she was ministering to Santa. Her ministry to me seems to be her ability to always make my heart smile. Except when she is not feeling well and it shows on her sweet face. Today's field trip was a gift to you from her creator.:) When I see Anabel, I see JOY. Be blessed sweet friend. Thank you for sharing this:)

Love and Hugs, Laurie

Oh my goodness! I love her so much and seeing her so happy to see Santa blesses my heart this morning. Thank you for sharing. I don't think our visit is going to go as well as yours. I'm hoping, but I have a feeling our pictures will include a 14 year old with his baby sister on his lap rather than Santas! Have a blessed day. Trish and Ash

I think you must be right. So glad you found a Santa who could see the miracle that Annabel is! I'm sure when he settled in for the night he like so many of us smiled to himself at the thought of her visit with him. Annabel is such a special little girl... what a blessing.....

Oh Cathy!

Your sweet angel can bring a tear to Santa's eyes. Wow.

She is such a joy and an incredible gift and I thank God that you are willing to share her with all of us!

So grateful for your friendship and knowing Annabel and the sweet joy she embodies. Praying for a very Merry Healthy Safe Christmas for you and yours!!!

I am sure Santa has seen Thousands of children through the year, if anyone knows the special ones it is him. YOU DID AN AMAZING JOB, with the pictures. I am so thrilled you have Khortni. We got our CHRISTmas card today.
Thank you

I am so glad to see Annabell is feeling better! She is such a precious angel! No wonder Santa fell in love with her! I am feeling better too. I should be back to work after the first of the year.

She is just beautiful. The pictures brought tears to my eyes!

I am still producing breastmilk from Josephine. If there is a way to get my milk to you, I would happily pump and donate to Annabel. Let me know if I could be of help!
