Little Miss P and I
We heard about Van Huge center last year from my sister, so this year my mum and I took Little Miss P and Mr Hill (my nephew) to have tea with Santa at Great Amwell. OH my i am glad i did - she loved it before we even got to sit down and eat tea she was excited. Seeing all the lights, waiting by the ice rink, watching people having fun and then falling over. Her face was like she had just stepped into a magical world.
Once we got our seats for tea Little Miss P went straight for the muffin and the drink - she even got a sausage roll. Then who should walk in but Santa.. St Nick himself! She forgot all about the food and started clapping with a big smile in her face. Mr Hill was a bit scared so he went running to mum (their nanny). Now it was time for a sing song of Rudolf the red nose reindeer and jingle bells, and a game of Santa says, which Little Miss P didn't win.
Little Miss P was so sad when Santa left but he was only going to have a sit down. I said that we can go and see him in his house, so that made her happy. But first we were off to get Little Miss P's face painted - she kept changing her mind in the queue, first it was a snowman then a tree then stars but when the lady asked she said tree. Oh how proud she was and spent the next 5 mins in front of the mirror looking at herself! What a funny little moo she can be! For 5 mins i think she forgot about seeing Santa again until i said 'shall we go and find Santa now' and she ran to find him.
I didn't think she would go talk to him as she's sometimes a bit funny like that, but she did and she told him her name and what she wanted for Xmas - a singing doll and a princess game - she said she's been good... well she thinks she has as i have over opinions about that! Santa gave her a book and a badge. She had her photo taken and we went to go on the Carousel. Mr Hill seemed to enjoy that and Little Miss P loved it, she had a great day and she'll not forget it for a long time. She even keeps the book Santa gave her under her pillow so it will be safe. I find that really sweet.
So if you going to see santa this year i would recommend here because Little Miss loved it and so did I :-)
