Breakfast with Santa
Last Saturday morning my mother-in-law and I took the boys to breakfast with Santa. It was held at a very nice hotel in town, so we got all dressed up. The boys got served hot cocoa as soon as we sat down and they got to add their own marshmallows, sprinkles, and whipped cream. That was followed by a nice pancake breakfast. During the meal Santa came out and waved at the kids from a balcony. Landon was enthralled. The Spokane Childrens' Choir sang Christmas Carols throughout the meal, and I think that was Coleson's favorite part. After we were done eating we got in line to sit with Santa and have pictures done. Landon was in awe of being able to sit with Santa. The magic of the whole season was written all over his face when he got to tell Santa what he wanted for Christmas. Coleson was not interested at all in sitting with Santa, but he did admire him from a distance. Landon was worried that Coleson didn't get to tell Santa what he wanted, but I assured him that Santa would know anyway. The experience was great, and I hope we can make it a yearly tradition. What a special morning!
