Breakfast With Santa 2011

by Brooke on December 30, 2011

*I’m going to try and update with our Christmas pictures and then we will see if I can blog better in 2012! :) *

One of our favorite family Christmas traditions is to go to “Breakfast with Santa” at the Grand America with Grandma Wendy and Grandpa Russ. The kids get all spiffied up in their new Christmas outfits and we all feast on a YUMMY breakfast buffet.


When we’re sufficiently stuffed we get to have pictures taken with Santa and Mrs. Claus—they are the real deal, folks!!

Haylie was so excited that she ran up to Santa with a huge grin on her face–no tears this year! :)

Annie wanted a Jessie and Bullseye set (from Toy Story 2).

Brandon’s dream was to get an ipod touch.

Haylie asked for a Lala Loopsy doll.

Did Santa come through on their wishes?!?!? Stay tuned to find out! :)

The Grand America is all decked out this time of year, with gorgeous trees and displays all over. This was one of my favorite trees, I love those handblown glass ornaments! They looked just like balloons. This was such a fun (and delicious!) way to kick off December–we love Breakfast with Santa!! :)

Dear Brooke, I have been recieving Crafting Chicks e-mails for years now, ( and LoVe-LoVe by the way)…but how FUN was it today when you shared your grandmothers rolls with us …and I have a High School classmate looking back at me with THAT SMILE of hers…your mother Wendy!!! Last time I saw her, our class of ’75 (Olympus) got together to ‘bid farewell’ to the school…(3 yrs ago I think…) anyway, Please tell your mother ‘Hi’ for me and Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all of you!
