The joy of believing: A letter from a patron

Dec 13, 2012

Hi Karen,

Chayton and Keegan with Santa (Photo courtesy of Kim Hendricks).

Thank you again for bringing Mrs. Claus and Santa to the Garden City library. We are new to the community so this was our first time at the event. Not only was it great to see so many kids from the community enjoying themselves but watching the magic happen with my boys was priceless! It goes without saying that THIS Mrs. Claus and Santa are the real deal – they were amazing – but I wanted to point out that there is something extra magical about children getting to hear a story told by Mrs. Claus and then visiting with Santa at their very own library. Certainly I do not want to discount the “mall santa” experience (what we have done in the past) but I think you have given our family a new “Santa visit” tradition. Thank you!!!

I have attached a photo I took of Chayton and Keegan with Santa. I know I am biased as their mom but there is something about their expressions to each other and the magical look of santa that I think is wonderful so I wanted to share it with you. It is also a great picture of Santa so please feel free to pass it on to him and Mrs. Claus if you think they would enjoy it.

Thanks again and I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas!
