So, Hallie has been asking all the Santa questions and I was hoping to get just one more year out of her believing in Santa, but she knows about the “insert swearword” elf on the shelf, (heres the link, if for some reason you want to torture yourself by getting one…lol) But back to the point, She was asking all the questions and I wanted to make it not so disappointing somehow…
Then I came across this amazing book, “There’s certainly a Santa,” which was written by my cute and clever friend Chelsea Rippy. So, I told her I had a secret to share and I was taking her on a date. We hit up a favorite girly girl spot (Dear Lizzie) for a treat, we love the “dizzy lizzie” drinks, and their desserts…ahem…coconut macarons for the pregnant lady. I gave Hal the book, she wanted to read it herself. I was so nervous… But all in all it went well! (see short clip of her reading the book below) She was obviously disappointed but she said she kinda knew last year, and she’s glad to know the “Super Top Secret” and is excited to be Santa for someone this year!
Then we shopped and enjoyed all the cute trinkets in the store and just had a nice time chatting and making sure she was okay with the new info! She loved the experience and I will do the same for Ty… in a year or two. He’s 9 and still wholeheartedly believes! Its so sad when kids grow up, but this book made the magic of Christmas stay and now Hallie gets to be a part of it!
