Breakfast with Santa

time for a few gifts!

This past weekend was our Christmas in Houston!  We had a ball with the whole family there.  Saturday was the annual Breakfast with Santa and this was our third year to go.  It was just as fun as always.  The Santa that comes to this breakfast is just amazing.  He has this voice that you could sit and listen to all day long.  He sings to the crowd and takes a lot of time with each child talking to them.  Abby was determined not to sit on his lap, but she eventually warmed up. She wouldn't look him in the eye, but did tell him what she wanted from Santa.  Hunter wasn't too sure about this man in a fluffy red suit, but didn't really care either way!  

After the breakfast the kids open a few gifts.  The cousins exchange gifts with each other and each take a turn opening the gift.  They are also given their stocking from Mimi and Papa filled with lots of fun little things they each love.  The adults get to have some fun too with a white elephant gift exchange that never disappoints! This year was no different.  Hilarious.

I just love this time of year.  So many FUN things to do and spending time with family makes it so much better!  We started off the month of December right and look forward to the next few weeks as well!
