Gracie Lynn Wilson didn’t want Santa Claus to eat by himself.
The Evansville, Indiana, girl, 3, loves Christmas.
Her family stopped at a local Bob Evans restaurant this week, and a man at a nearby table looked familiar -- the flowing white beard, red suspenders and glasses. So Gracie Lynn approached.
“She pulled up the chair and they just started having a conversation like they knew each other for years,” her mother, Lindsey Wilson, told the television station WFIE.
Lindsey Wilson snapped a photo of the pair talking, a special encounter for the toddler, a moment with Santa.
Gracie Lynn only asked for one thing for Christmas this year -- her baby brother James, who is supposed to be born in a few weeks.
