A little girl was eating with her mother at a Bob Evans in Indiana when she saw a situation that could just not stand.
A man she believed to be Santa Claus was sitting in a nearby booth eating breakfast alone.
Gracie Lynn, 3, asked her mother, Lindsey Wilson, if it would be OK if she went and sat with Santa while he ate.
Wilson sent a picture to Evansville TV station WFIE and said Gracie Lynn and the man who was happy to play the part of Santa got along famously.
Wilson told WFIE that Gracie Lynn asked if she could go live with Santa and Mrs. Claus.
Instead of presents, Gracie Lynn reportedly asked only to meet her new brother who is due in a December.
