Visting Santa: Awesome Experience at Abt!
I don't even remember my mom paying for photos when I was little- we brought our own camera, went to sit on Santa's lap, told him all about the Jem and the Holograms, Get in Shape Girl Ribbon Dancer Kit, and Sweet Secrets that I wanted, and that was it. No massive quantities of money (large enough to support a starving third world child for a year) changed hands.

Last year, I was fortunate enough to stumble across a wonderful location while our family was shopping for home theater equipment at Abt. I took a walk around with our then two year old while my husband talked subwoofers and amps with the salesman. I wanted to show him the fountain they have in the main lobby area, but instead stumbled across Santa! Luckily, Bryson was down to hop on his lap and smile for the camera. A little bit of that Christmas magic snuck back into our lives, and I was incredibly thankful to Abt for providing this opportunity for my family.
This year, we grabbed lunch at BurgerFi (which, if you haven't been, it is just around the corner from Abt and the food is amazing, check out my review here) and made our way to Abt. I was even more impressed- they had a Frozen theme throughout the entire lobby! You could make a snowman, a princess crown, get your hair braided Elsa-style, and even send letters to soldiers overseas.
I quickly tossed my 11 month old to Santa hoping to catch her by surprise and delay the inevitable "strange man cry" for a minute- worked like a charm.
Oh, and I did I mention Olaf was there?!
I just wanted to say thank you to this Santa and Abt for giving these memories to my family!
