“She was just sneaking around the aisle, had her back against the toys,” her older sister Miya Lupashunski told WSAZ. “We were behind her, and she’d put her finger up to her lips and go ‘Shh! It’s Santa!’ “

Although the man wasn’t in a full Santa attire, he did have a long white beard and was wearing a bright red sweatshirt.
After some encouragement from her dad, Sophie went to speak with the casual Santa. It turns out his name is Roger Larck and although he might not be the “official” Santa, his actions over the next few moments create a memory that will last a lifetime for this little girl.

“Santa?” Sophie asks as she approaches him. “I’ve been called worse,” he replied.

After seeing the awe and wonder in 3-year-old Sophie’s eyes, Larck decided to be Santa just for those next few moments.
Sophie is excited to show off her pretty nails to ‘Santa,’ and she also lets him know that he can expect cookies when he arrives at her house. He asks if all of the cookies are for him, but she quickly tells him he can only have one. The others are meant for his reindeer, although, she realizes that they usually only eat grass.

“They do, but up in the North Pole, grass is pretty hard to come by,” Larck replies back to Sophie.
