I'm not sure when it'll be that the boys refuse to get a photo with Santa, but I've been very lucky so far that none of them have complained about it. Kobe is of course always excited to go and see Santa and to tell him what he wants for Christmas. Harri humors me, and Jalen is such a good sport because I think he knows how much it means to me.
For a long time we have been visiting the beautiful Santa at Meadow Mews because he remembered Noah's name every year. He was such a lovely Santa and he would always see us pushing Noah in his wheelchair and would say 'here comes Noah!'. It amazed me every year that he remembered his name, and it touched us so much when the lovely Santa came to his funeral and came and said hello to me after the service.
We never expect him to remember us, but yesterday the boys went up to him and he looked at them and said 'it's the King family!'. The boys thought it was pretty cool that he remembered, but he admitted to them that he couldn't remember their first names. We had a lovely chat about how much the boys had grown up.
I'll be devastated if 'Our' Santa ever retires from his duties in December. We love visiting him every year.
