For Unto Us a Child Is Born






So, the local T.J. Applebee's Restaurant opened at 8AM this morning to allow a local charity to hold a benefit pancake breakfast. The cost was $5 per plate (two pancakes, butter, syrup, two strips of bacon, free refills on drinks), but the real benefit to us was that Santa Claus came. I'm convinced that it wasn't one of Santa's helpers; it appears the Jolly Old Elf made a personal appearance today in the Pee Dee. Luckily we had our cameras. Jack didn't really care for Santa this year. He seemed to be repulsed by his presence. But, then again, he only likes Mommy these days.




Weirdo!

What a great Santa! I wonder what your daughter whispered in his ear. Your kids are truly adorable. Thanks for sharing.

Mason saw a picture on a shelf at Fonnesbeck's this weekend. It was a picture of Paige sitting on Santa's lap. His beard was kind of fake looking - really long and shiny. He said, "That Santa looks funny. He doesn't look like the real Santa that we saw". I didn't know what to say except, "hmmm..." That was the end of the conversation, but I am afraid his years of magic and believing are are soon to be over. I don't want them to be over.

Jack has grown up so much since you guys left. Shocking.
