Santa (John) paid a surprise visit and was truly amazing. He was wonderful with the children and even had the undivided attention of all of the adults.Santa did a wonderful job of planning his visit and arrived at the exact time that we had agreed upon.

He truly pays attention to each and every detail. The names of our grandchildren were printed in his "Nice" book and brought the biggest smile from our 5 year old grandchild. His wonderful stories are still talked about today!

The most memorable thing from his visit was when the 6 year old told us "That was the REAL Santa because his beard was stuck in his skin like our eyebrows!" 

We plan on making the Santa visit an annual event for our grandchildren and would highly recommend John Chilson!
