Just before bed time, there was a knock at the door.

The annual Santa sleigh charity collection.

So we bundled up CJ nice and warm and quickly dashed out.

He is teething and has a cold so it’s been a night and a day of screaming

but when he saw the magic outside, that all stopped.

It was wide eyes of wonder as the sleigh pulled up and Santa climbed out.

And then, when he was offered a sit in the sleigh, it was all smiles.

He’s growing up so quick.
