Police Chief Joe Parsons received the cutest surprise.
Eating at the Shonet’s Country Cafe in West Virginia, he said “waiters came over from another room and said there’s a little girl over here who thinks you’re Santa Claus.” He said the waiters asked him if he would talk to the girl, Kaylee Confere, for a few minutes. He obliged.

Parsons decided to join in the fun and play along. Speaking with the girl, he asked her what she wanted for Christmas. “She said she wanted a Barbie,” Parsons said. When he asked her which kind of Barbie she wanted, she said she wanted a princess one.
Parsons and other members of the police department are growing their beards as part of the “No Shave November” campaign.
“It was just a fantastic encounter!”
According to its official website, “The goal of No-Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free. Donate the money you typically spend on shaving and grooming to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle.”
In addition to serving as Santa Claus, Parsons told Confere he works as a police officer during offseason. “It was just a fantastic encounter,” he said. “It was certainly unexpected and it made my night.”
