On Christmas Eve, before pretending to go to sleep, Liam was plotting how he was going to catch Santa Claus tonight.
I know! I have to go incognito and go gingerly down the stairs at the perfect moment! He will no doubt fall for it and I will have proof that he is real!
Later that night...
Liam awoke with a fright to a loud noise chimney, then he avowed...
That must be Santa! I have to go catch him!
Oh my goodness! It's really him! It's the legendary Santa Claus! I've always venerated you sir. It's such an honor to finally meet you
When Liam veered down the stairs he could not believe his eyes...
OH! You scared me, little boy!
That's okay! You seem like a very enterprising little boy. I'm sure I have something good in store for you. But you better get back to bed!
I'm sorry Santa! I didn't mean to scare you. But I'm so excited to meet you!
HO HO HO! Good night, little boy. Merry Christmas!
Oh ok. Good night Santa! Merry Christmas!
Christmas morning, Liam, and his sister and brother, squealed and jumped after they sprinted down the stairs Christmas morning and saw the bountiful glut of gifts Santa had left for them the night before.
