We went to Bass Pro Shop to see Santa the weekend after Thanksgiving
Ella and Grammy
Lots of outdoorsy things to do while we waited in line
And amazingly, Dottie let Santa hold her and we got an awesome Santa picture! Dottie is extremely selective about being held by anyone but us but I think the trick here is that they basically backed her into Santa's crooked arm, and she never even looked at his face. She just looked adorably out at us, while Ella chatted it up with Santa and gave a list for both of them!
It was a very successful Santa visit, we will definitely plan to go back next year.
