Santa has arrived in Rochester!  This is such a magical time of year and kids everywhere are getting their lists ready so they can visit with the big guy in red.

Big crowds, loud noises, unfamiliar surroundings sometimes aren't environments that work best for all kids, including one of my own.  I heard that Santa will be making some special visits for kids in Rochester...and maybe your child would like this visit too!

One of my kiddos has severe anxiety and meeting Santa at the mall with the huge line of kids - some that are very happy and others that are hysterically crying as they sit on his lap - not the best way to say "Merry Christmas".  I saw that a store in Rochester was providing a different experience this year and I know for many parents, this is an amazing gift.
