ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Santa Claus is here.

Hundreds of kids cheered as Santa arrived on a train at the Albany Mall Friday night.

Madyson Keeffe, 7, pretty much summed up the feeling in the room.

"I was pretty excited," said Keeffe.

And even more thrilled to let Santa know what she had on her Christmas list.

"Zummerhedgie, mermaid tail, a mermaid tail blanket, a golf cart," said Keeffe.

But the most important question of the night was whether she was naughty or nice.

"Nice," said Keeffe.

And she had a pretty good reason why.

"Because I share my stuff with my friends a lot," said Keeffe.

Shaneidra Hayes couldn't wait to share this memorable moment with her three-year-old daughter.

"It's exciting I think I'm more excited then she is, she's on the phone she's pretty excited all week we're going to see Santa so we got to see Santa and it's very exciting," said Hayes.

Hayes was shocked to see the large crowd waiting for Santa.

"I call myself I came early and I was like wow when we came in there was no where to sit, just standing room early," said Hayes.

Hayes said taking pictures with Santa is her favorite part of the season.

Keeffe enjoys the holidays for a different reason.

"The most important thing about the holidays is you spend time with your family," said Keeffe.

Santa will be at the mall through Christmas Eve.
