We headed up to The Resort At Squaw Valley for their annual Christmas kickoff celebration. We started the night with a sleigh ride pulled by a beautiful, huge horse.
Hannah Gray and I were petting the horse, when apparently, he decided he didn’t like it. We were caught on camera jumping out of the way
Hannah Gray actually WALKED up to Santa and Ms. Clause with me, I think probably because Ms. Clause was there. But she sat on her lap and TALKED to them!!! They asked her her name, how old she was and what she wanted for Christmas. She was a mouse up there, but we were so, so proud of her!! You can see how excited she was and proud of herself in the second picture too. She planned to tell them that she wanted a “pink ski helmet with blue goggles”, but clamed up a bit so Santa asked her if she wanted a baby doll and of course she said yes. I took Tenley up there too, but she went ballistic, so we didn’t push it. However, when we went back up to get HG, Santa asked Tenley if she would give him a high five and she did so without missing a beat, she wasn’t scared at all. She just didn’t want to sit on his lap. I guess I can’t blame her.
This was HG on Santa’s lap the last time she visited him back in 09…
