We had breakfast at a local historic site this morning, but it was made extra special by having Santa join us. I think this is one of my favorite things that we try to do each Christmas. There is a great breakfast buffet, music, face painting and games, and of course special time with Santa. Little J was sure to remind him that he wanted a Megalodon tooth for Christmas (some two front teeth!). Juiciness and Sassyfras would only peek at him from a distance.
I wasn't sure if the kids would be able to sit through breakfast or wait in the line for Santa easily, so I packed little sacks of goodies for each of the kids. They had things like washable markers and paper pads, little wooden ornaments to color, small wind up toys, mini books, and Christmas stickers. They enjoyed their sacks, but were happily engaged in all the happenings at breakfast.
I hope you are enjoying special time with your family this weekend.
