Saturday morning we started out the day with a pancake breakfast at church. Santa showed up at the end to listen to each child's Christmas gift request.
I was glad that Luke's encounter with Santa was a happy one. He was so little last year, that this feels like his first Christmas.
Santa and Mrs. Claus stopped and handed out candy canes to every child,
Based on the excitement created by just one candy cane, I'm pretty sure we could have kept Christmas very simple and just filled the boys' stockings with a few of those red and white treats. :-)
And a crane truck, of course.
