We went to the annual "Breakfast with Santa" sponsored by the local Girl Scouts troop and held in the undercroft of our church this past weekend. When I say we, I mean myself, Rowan and Liam; otherwise known as "the believers". Aidan and Mark were at Aidan's first basketball game of the season. The teenagers, Patrick and Conor, still had hours of sleep in them and did NOT want to be seen at the aforementioned breakfast.
Several crafts, face painting, breakfast and petting zoo (which consisted of free kittens - kill me now) escapades later, we were able to accomplish our real reason for being there: visiting Santa.
Aidan arrived after all of the festivities to let us know that not only had his team won the game, but that he had scored 6 points. Wow! He then proceeded to seal the deal minutes later on "the best day ever" when he won the Giant Stocking Raffle!! Just what every nine year old needs days before Christmas. Honestly, the stocking ought to be given to the parents to be bequeathed to the winning child on Christmas morning.
Don't they know how hard I've worked?!
