These flowers in the chapel were arranged by Ella.
Santa had a busy start for the day. The first hour and a half we’re pretty busy all the way through. Many of them had made reservations but also quite a few drop-ins or walk-ups.
At one point, we were ready to tell a grandpa with two girls to come in. However, we had a customer who wanted re-takes of an older toddler who refused to smile. He wasn’t fussy or crying. But would 12th not smile. She never was happy but purchased a package anyway. Once grandma was done, we finally could usher grandpa and girls in. He stated, “This will be a one take.” And it was. Both girls were grinning from ear to ear.
My favorite photograph of the day was the baby boy that threw his head back to look up at Santa while Santa was looking down at him.
