I just got off the phone with Santa Claus to confirm our “Saturday with Santa” play date. 

It’s a GO!

I can’t wait for Jolly ol’ Saint Nicholas to open his workshop at Shadow Lake Towne Center to momaha readers Saturday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Santa happened by while we were at Shadow Lake Towne Center. He tried to talk to my 22-month-old Gabriella and she lost it.

Screaming and crying. Big tears rolled down her cheeks, as she pleaded, “Mom! Mom! Mom! I love you!.”

Well, that went over well.

We asked Omaha-area moms to share their Santa photos and stories. And, boy, did they.

Santa Letter

For 15 years, Kim Barham of the Omaha Post Office has been answering letters from children for Santa Claus.

Notes start arriving in mid-November, scribbled in crayon by preschoolers or penned in cursive by 9-year-olds.

Barham reads every letter — all 1,000 of them — and writes a personal reply on behalf of the man in red.

She knows it’s a big responsibility. She knows about Christmas dreams. She knows that the years children write to Santa are as fleeting as they are memorable.

Being Santa Claus has been a joyful task.

Santa photos crack me up. You either get one of two extremes: super excited or unsmiling kids awkwardly posed on Santa’s lap.

If you have a Santa photo that’s of an extremely happy child, funny, awkward or just plain bad, momaha wants to hear from you. Share your Santa picture-taking memories with us.

Submit your photo, contact information and a two- to three-sentence explanation of the image to jloza@owh.com

Don’t be shy. Trust me. I’ve been there.

As a matter of fact, the above image was taken at momaha’s play date with Santa Claus last weekend.
