Tea with Santa

We are the luckiest family!  For the last 10 years we have been invited to a very special "tea with Santa".  This is no ordinary mall Santa, this is the "Real Santa".  This yummy breakfast place called T.C. Eggington's invites some of their devoted customers to a special seating with the man in red.  The funny thing about it is we have not been too devoted over the last 10 years.  Blake was a long time customer from a long time ago.(before kids and Claudia)
The girls get to sit on Santa's lap, eat yummy sugar cookies, drink apple cider, and write and deliver Santa's letter to the big guy.  I can't believe Grace sat down at all.

Mrs. Claus and the elves are there too.

This is such a Christmas tradition for us we even canceled a camping trip to get caught up with the man in red.
