That's what Dakin calls Santa. Hilarious, right? Like the Hanta virus? Ok, maybe it's only me who thinks that's funny. Anyhoo...here's this year's Santa picture. You will note how thrilled our little hero is by all this. I was hoping it would go like last year's pic...but you know what they say about the best laid plans of mice and moms... We did get a better one where Dakin was in his chair, but I can't get it to upload. Boo Photobucket.
See our same sweet Santa? This man is so kind and gentle with Dakin, and remembers him every year. He loves seeing him, even if the feeling is (at least this year) not mutual (boy, you should have seen the tears!!).
And again, our wonderful friend T at the mall made us an early appointment, came in early so we could do this, let us Lysol the set (and Santa himself!!), and even got Santa a new pair of gloves right out of the box just for Dakin. I know I have said this time and again, but we are unspeakably grateful for these people. Three years in a row now they have bent over backwards for Dakin. And we can never repay them for it. We are so blessed to be put in contact with people who want to help Dakin. Truly, immeasurably blessed.
