Breakfast with Santa...

So you can read about our ridiculously BUSY weekend here.

Of our fun adventures this weekend this is one that the kids were looking the most forward to. (It helped that they didn't know about the gingerbread adventure till after this part but I digress.) They got up with smiles on their faces (at 6:00 in the morning after a late night that isn't normal for my two) and were excited to get dressed. Here are Leanna and Hudson waiting to put their coats on to leave.

Their excited little faces made the early morning rush totally worth it. I love all the excitement of the holidays to begin with but to see their eyes bulging out twinkling in sheer excitement makes it just that much more special.

So we get there to a wonderful breakfast of delicious donuts with chocolate icing and sprinkles and muffins with candy sprinkles and sugar "breakfast" cookies with sprinkles. I hyperventilated watched calmly as they devoured their breakfasts. As they were eating we heard Christmas Bells and in came Santa. Leanna and Hudson almost fell out of their chairs! (Did I mention I love the magic children bring to this holiday) Here is Hudson telling Santa he is eating a snowman donut.

There were some stories and games and then we got to go upstairs and sit on Santa's lap. We were invited to take as many pictures as we wanted (So of course I did). Here are some of my favorites...

It was soooo much fun. We had a blast with friends and family that day. Are you having a fun Christmas season so far?

Leanna asked Santa for a "Super cool Board Game" and Hudson asked for a new ball.

We had a great time.
