I quickly explained to Matthew that just like everyone else, Santa needs to trim his hair and he must have done it recently. As for the silver/grey discrepancy I think he forgot about it while we were discussing Santa's haircut. Good thing too because I'm not sure what I would say.
If you have any suggestions let me know - the topic is likel to come up again knowing Matthew.
I was so thrilled we were there at such a quiet time as I am sure they would not have so patiently allowed us to sit with Santa for so long if it was a crazy shopping day.
I was thrilled with their photo and thought we had somehow managed to have a relatively stress free trip to see Santa, until we were in the van on the way home and Matthew blurts out "I forgot to tell Santa what I want for Christmas!!"
We decided to write Santa a letter instead of returning to the mall.
(Michael is not falling off - he is purposely laing down and dragging his arms through the snow.)

I unfortunately had to edit the video because it was too large to upload, but you still get to see most of the performance ( I just cut the beginning where he is supposed to be standing still).
We were very proud of our little snowman. (In case you didn't recognize him he was the one in the red scarf.)
He had a long wait before his part of the show. The boy next to him kept him entertained. At one point he even tried to eat Matthew's carrot nose - too cute.
They spotted Santa up on the balcony of the theatre and were a lile distracted. They even started waving at him.
This was Matthew as he sat on the stage and started to see the theatre fill up with people - just a little stunned, but he survived.
