WATAUGA, Tex. — One north Texas family says they have already captured the magic of Christmas. With only a very few words spoken, it was a moment in time that a boy and his mother won't soon forget.
Matthew Foster, 6, is blind and autistic. His mother, Misty Wolf, says when they went to visit Santa and she told him, "Santa put up his hand and said 'Say no more.'"

Then Santa got down on the floor to let Matthew "see" Santa, in his own way. Wolf told KTVT, "Having him feel all over his coat, the fuzz and the felt, the hat and he even said 'Pull my beard. Is there anything else you want to feel?' And Matthew said, 'Your eyes that twinkle,' so he let him feel his eyes."
"He has never seen the world the way we have seen the world," Santa Claus said. "You relate to the child and what the child needs."
"It was definitely a moment when I was all teared up just to see him interact with something that's, you know Santa is the magic of Christmas," said Wolf. "This is what Christmas is about."
