Christmas Eve

Waiting for Santa!!!

Monday, December 24, 2007

For the fourth Christmas in a row, we went to Powell Gardens for "Breakfast with Santa." We can not say how enjoyable this annual outing is for us. We again were able to go on a weekday and were the only family there! Santa rode with the boys on the train, took them around the solarium showing them all the 12 days of Christmas motif. Mrs. Claus read to the boys, and the wonderful volunteer was enourmously patient with the boys, showing them how to make reindeer out of their hand prints.

As always, the water in the solarium was a huge draw!!! They had "seven swans a swimming" this year.

Kye made sure Santa saw all the hidden drummers.

We highly recommend the short drive to Powell Gardens if you live in the KC area. It is a wonderful time for our family!


We had a snow day in December, by late afternoon the snow had stopped and we were able to go a couple of blocks to the elementary school down the street and do some sledding.

Kye and Mommy made snow angels

Kris had more fun eating snow and playing on the playground equipment

Kye got really good at speeding down hill!
