Firetruck Santa 2008

Every year the volunteer fire company in our little town drives around in their firetrucks & ambulances with lights flashing and sirens blaring, giving Santa a ride through the neighborhoods as he waves to the kids and his "elves" pass out candy canes.  This year we went to a friend's house and made a small donation to the fire company to have Firetruck Santa make a personal visit to the kids.

When we got to the friend's house, Anna and Cara kept looking up in the sky asking if we saw Santa yet.  After playing with their friends for awhile (there are 3 girls in the other family right around the same age), we heard the sirens.  All the kids piled by the front door to see the firetruck pull up with lights flashing, and Santa stepped out.  There was MUCH excitement!

 He passed out candy canes to all the girls (most of which got broken before we left), and each one took a turn on his lap.  Anna talked to Santa so quietly I couldn't really hear what she was saying.  Cara didn't really care to tell Santa what she wanted for Christmas; instead, she introduced him to everyone in the room: "that's my sister; that's my daddy; that's my mommy; that's Lauren," etc.  I'm sure Santa was enthralled!
