After considerable anticipation (especially on the parts of Mama and Ol' Baba), Caroline met St. Nick for the first time. We were pleased that she - unlike many small children meeting He Who Hands Out the Goodies for the first time - didn't cry or fuss. She got into his lap without any trouble, but then looked puzzled and a little dazed. Worse, she forgot all the coaching I gave her about what *I* want. Oh, well... Maybe next year.
