i (heart) santa

if anyone was wondering, santa at the stanford mall is amazing. he's obviously the authentic santa. not some low-budget helper. he's the real deal. 

with a little help from leah's mom, he asked a list of questions that leah knew the answers to...and she answered with her switch. enjoy:

 {s:what's your name?
l: my name is leah. i have been a good girl!
s: what do you want from santa?
l: i'd like santa to bring me some roller skates?
s: roller skates? whoa woudl that be nice! i'll see what i can do. 
m: what do you tell santa?
l: thank you, santa.
s: ah, you're so welcome. you're so welcome. i'll see what i can do about the roller skates, okay?}

also, we went with our favorite boyfriends cam, ty and jack. those boys were enamored with leah and her new-found voice. she told them all about her favorites and the answered her questions...and then they sang jingle bells together. it was pretty much awesome.

So cute! She is such a doll. Just so you know, Zach is crushed that he is not in that list of "favorite boyfriends..." :) I guess long distance relationships don't go so well anyway...
