Well, maybe next year.
We met Santa at our local Down syndrome association's holiday party, where aside from being terrified of a man in a red suit, Ellie had a blast. She ate while
And although meeting Santa himself was pretty traumatic, Ellie enjoyed receiving a stuffed reindeer and a new book from his helpers. (Thanks, Janelle!)
I love watching Ellie come alive surrounded by other kids, and she has some little friends with Down syndrome we enjoy visiting at these events.
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Santa-free night!
