Breakfast With Santa

This past weekend was our 3rd annual Breakfast With Santa at the kids' preschool. Luckily we will still be able to attend next yeat because Luke will still be going there, but what are we going to do the year after that? I may have Santa withdrawal ... the mall Santa just won't cut it. As my kids know, the Santa that comes to school is the REAL Santa, all those other guys dressed up as Santa are just his happy helpers.

I thought it would be fun to see the Santa pictures from our last three years at the breakfast, so here they are:



I love love love that we see the same Santa every year. I think it makes things more real for the kids. We didn't get the greatest picture this year, but that's ok. Santa was trying to get all the kids to look at the camera so he was trying the waving tactic. Good idea, but people waving doesn't exactly lend itself to a good picture.

The kids had fun sharing their lists. Santa also made sure to let them know exactly what to leave for him when he comes on Christmas Eve. In case you were wondering, it's cookies, milk, carrots for the reindeer, and an apple for Rudolph (he totally improvised on that last one).

They even got to see Santa's super cool watch that plays "Jingle Bells" on cue.

After our visit, it was time for fun crafts, activities, and (my favorite part) the breakfast treats!

 As always, we had such a great time. The preschool does such a wonderful job with this event and I will be so sad when my kids will have aged out of it. But, for now, we still get to go and experience a little bit of Christmas magic (with a side helping of sausage balls and donuts)!
