This photo and story has captured my heart! You may have already seen it on facebook, but just in case, it’s too good not to pass it along…..

Sarah Pasley of Meridian shared the following story on Facebook on the baby clothing store Carters Facebook page.

"My mother and I had braved the mall (on a Saturday in December of all days) in hopes of capturing a picture of my 8 month old son, Kiptyn "meeting" Santa.

"We stood in line for over 30 minutes waiting for our turn. Of course, 5 mins before our turn to meet Santa, Kiptyn fell asleep!! Part of me thought we should just get out of line & avoid wasting anyone else's time that busy Saturday, but as we went to leave Santa gestured us over. I handed Kiptyn to my Mom & grabbed my camera. "

"I was escorted outside of the fenced area in order to snap my own shots. What happened next will be one of my all time favorite memories of Christmas... Santa grabbed his book & slowly laid back into his oversized chair. He then silently motioned for my Mom to lay Kiptyn on his stomach. Kiptyn stirred for a moment and I thought he'd wake for sure. "

"Santa hushed him & Kiptyn's little arms fell into such a peaceful position. After we finished taking pictures we heard a round of applause from the crowd that had gathered around below & above in the rotunda. I just wish this jolly ol' man could know how truly special he is. I can honestly say that I believe in Santa and the magic of the holiday season again. I'd just like for everyone to see how special the Santa at the Boise Towne Square mall really is. "

That is one of the best Christmas stories...especially in light of the Connecticut tragedy. There are so many good people in this world...we just never hear about the good. Thanks for sharing this

This brought tears to my eyes. My boys are all grown up now, but I vividly recall the hours of waiting in line to get photos with Santa. Thank you so much for sharing this photo.
Hugs,
