An hour ago there was a quiet knock at the door. One of our neighbors, an elderly woman whom we admire, said "honey, there is someone here to see Indy, he knocked on my door by mistake". Indiana hears the neighbors voice and crawls to the door, making as much noise at our feet as he possibly can. Who do we see sitting in our lawn chair on our porch? SANTA! Come to make a house call!!
Our neighbor works with a lot of other elderly people, as well as mentally challenged folks. This particular Santa is a friend of hers, who is"retarded". Santa was showing off his new costume for our neighbor while on his way to a Christmas party for Mentally and Physically Challenged children. Indiana, although not challenged in that way, was his first "visit-ee". Indiana sat happily on his lap and pulled at his beard, and we are thrilled to have gotten a home visit from a very special Santa Claus.
