HURRICANE, WV -  It doesn't get much cuter than this, a little girl's encounter with Santa Claus, caught on camera.

Little Sophie Jo was shopping with her parents in West Virginia when she spotted a man she was sure was Santa.

The girl followed the man until she got up the nerve to talk to him.

The man, Roger Larck, seemed very at ease, possibly because it’s not the first time he's been mistaken for St. Nick.

He asked Sophie Jo if she had been a good girl this year and wished her a Merry Christmas.

Her dad, Robert Riley, captured the conversation and posted it to Facebook, where it has now gone viral.
