First Time Meeting Santa Claus

It's the Saturday before Christmas. It's snowy and blustery. The malls are packed. And Santa is in true form getting ready for his big ride. Among all of the Christmas crowd is a family who literally drove the distance.

"We drove in from Hobbs this morning to get the boys pictures taken with Santa," said Darrik Lasater.

The Lasater family, dad Darrik and mom Molly brought their sons Logan and Jude for a very special meeting with the big man himself, Santa Claus.

"This will be their first time so we're hoping the tears will stay in and it's just all smiles," said Darrik.

You heard right! This is Logan and Jude's first meeting with Santa Claus!

When asked are you excited to meet Santa Claus?

Logan's replied, "yeah."

"He's been waiting for this all week," said his father Darrik.

What are you going to ask him for?," NewsChannel 11 asked Logan.

He replied, "A tool shop."

After about a half an hour in line, the moment Logan has been waiting for, time to meet Santa. But his brother Jude it wasn't too excited.

When the whole experience was all said and done with, we asked Logan, "Was he a nice guy?"

Logan replied, "yeah."

We asked "do you think you're going to get what you want for Christmas?"

Logan said, "yeah."

Then Molly, "What do you think, mom... How did it go?

Molly, Logan and Jude's mother said, "probably what we expected with Jude crying and Logan happy to see Santa." 

Traveling all the way from Hobbs, was it all worth it? The Lasater family replied "Yeah it was worth it, we got the picture to prove it."
