Mommy Caught Santa!



I'm still visiting family in Canada. This is my 2nd official Christmas and last year he came and no-one even knew that he was there. I woke up that morning and there were my gifts under the tree just waiting for me. I got my picture taken with him last year and this year was no exception. I got another picture but this year I also got something extra.

This year mommy caught him and now I know that he's real and that he was there. Wanna know how I know? Mommy got a picture to prove it. Yeah, Santa thought he was sneaky but mommy was sneakier and caught him right in the act. Still not sure how he bypassed the alarms and there is no chimney for him to sneak in through. Mommy said it was the North Pole Magic that brought him there. I want some of that North Pole magic.

Well here is my proof! Told you mommy caught Santa. According to mommy this Santa was special and he looks just like me. Notice how dark it was but he came in like a thief in the night. That was mommy's way of describing him. He even had the nerve to smile while his picture was being taken. Mommy didn't think it warranted calling the cops but now we both have proof that he was there. 

Now maybe next Christmas I'll be able to catch him all by myself because I plan on staying up and waiting for him. 


I hope all my readers had a great Christmas. Did any of you catch Santa too?

    1. Hi Robin we're still having lots of fun and if mommy didn't have to return to work we would be here even longer. I love it here even though it's colder. I'm surprised Santa found me. ♥ Madison

  2. Well, what do you know--lucky that your Mom was able to catch Santa in the act--that is not so easy!! MAYBE next year you will be able to catch him yourself (but it is pretty hard to catch Santa in the act--he is a pretty sneaky guy!)

  13. This is great! As much as my children tried to catch Santa, they were unsuccessful. Even after they tried really hard to stay awake. And while I tried exceptional hard to stay awake. Have fun in Canada!

  29. We caught him too, he is a very busy man. No wonder he goes through so many cookies so he has the sugar rush!

    Replies
    1. I think that's how he gets to so many houses in so little time. All those cookies makes him go really fast. That's why you have to leave him cookies or something sweet. No carrots or broccoli. I'm happy you caught him too. You're sneaky like my mommy. ♥ Madison

  35. This is too funny! I'm always wondering myself how he gets in past alarms and everything. It really must be that North Pole magic. I don't think the cops would come for Santa, he would disappear before they come. Have a Happy New Year.

    1. You may just be right Tiffany. I don't think that he would stick around either. The North Pole magic would take him away before they could get there. Happy New Year to you too! ♥ Madison

  36. Yes Madison, you can do it! You will have this picture of him so you're sure he is not an imposter too :) Be sure to show ALL your friends so they can let you know if they spot him! I'll be awaiting to hear your grand success next Christmas :)
