On the fifth day of Christmas, my daughter gave to me…fun with Santa, Bert, Ernie and Abby. Since Quinn was one and a half, we started the tradition of going to Sesame Place to have some fun and enjoy the Christmas festivities, and each year gets better and better. This makes our fourth year attending the Dine with Elmo and friends lunch, and there’s always a great selection of kid friendly food and tasty desserts that I surely couldn’t resist.
But what made this year extra special is that this is the first time that Santa, himself, joined the Sesame Place characters and went around to each table greeting the children and their families. He even invited Quinn to dance with him as the music played which really made her day. Even at my age, I would have loved to share the dance floor with Santa.
After lunch, we braved the cold and got on a few rides and the caught the Elmo the Musical Christmas show to warm up a little before ending our day with the Sesame Place Christmas parade. It was a fun-filled day, but what really made my day was when my little girl came running up to me smiling after getting off of a ride with her dad. Trying to catch her breath, she said, “Thank you, Mommy for taking me to Sesame Place for the Christmas lunch and activities!”
While I’m glad she demonstrated her gratitude, little did she know I really look forward to this even every year and am glad she’s been on her best behavior because I would have a hated to go without her…just kidding, of course!
All the best,
