The day after Thanksgiving we generally find ourselves downtown Minneapolis to see the Christmas presentation in the Macy’s (used to be Dayton’s) 8th floor auditorium. Each year it usually changes, however this year, for some reason, was much the same as last year’s. It did not matter for it was the road to Santa’s lap and we had a 2.5 year old with us who had some very important business to conduct with the Jolly Old Elf.
Here are a few shots of some of the scenes you see as you walk through a maze of assorted delights.
Smiling faces and small ones filled with awe are found everywhere.
Whimsy and wonder are the tone as we are looking at a day in the life of Santa’s Elves preparing for the big day.
Then finally it is time for some serious matters with the *Big Guy*. Man to man, Santa does understand what is needed…wanted.
Then the photo op and the deal is sealed!
This calls for some ‘big’ celebration! Look at the size of those cookies!
Green frosted nourishment is important while seeing the latest Santa has to offer.
Then on to the Crystal Court in the IDS tower to enjoy the sights.
Yes, these are photos of the same child! The sugar rush has set in and we see the switch from angelic to COOKIE MONSTER! ;)
BUT this is what we were looking up at, Spiderman maybe?It is just a man working on the top windows of the Crystal Court.
Minneapolis has many skyways to keep folks traversing the city warm in the harsh winter temps,and to just get around easier. The next two shots were taken while crossing through one of those skyways.
