Today was the Medtronic Children's Holiday party. We were expecting total meltdown from Zander - and possibly Mason...but it actually went okay. We went into it knowing that we were going to do a family photo with Santa - and that's just what we did. And that's okay. After the photo, Santa asked Zander what he wanted and he actually talked to Santa. He told him he wants a "marble thing". I got a photo during this discussion.
Later today, we were talking about our visit to Santa and Zander commented, "Mom, I didn't even cry - when we were taking the picture AND when Santa asked what I wanted."
