Last month, we got to go eat "Breakfast with Santa" at our area Festival of Trees to support a great children's agency in our area.
While all my girls will quickly tell you "santa is pretend" they still love the fun of it and were super excited to go and spend the morning with him.
It was a fun morning as a family. Here is Santa and Mrs. Claus reading a story to everyone.
Kate and Daddy listening closely.
Ava was more excited about something else, though, than santa.
A local ballet company danced some excepts from "The Nutcracker." My little girl was blissfully happy to see ballerinas dancing around the stage and kept telling me, "take a picture of HER mom!"
AND HER!!! (I'll stop here to spare you : ) )
Then we got to spend some time enjoying the rest of the festival. Always a favorite? Face painting. Although this was the first time Kate and Olivia wanted their whole face done.

Before we left, we got to visit Santa and Mrs. Clause ourselves. Olivia was not too sure. . .
