Visit with Santa

Lucas and Kevin made a lovely gingerbread house at school last week. It became one of our centerpieces for our Christmas celebration.

On Tuesday the 22nd, Lucas, Haley and I went downtown to the Minneapolis Macy's Christmas display. Santa's helper spoke fluent Spanish, and had a wonderful conversation with the kids. Lucas didn't know what to ask from Santa. One of these years that will change. Haley wanted to give Santa some money to buy toys for others. I told her we would donate toys instead. She made sure to tell Santa of our plans. We dropped some coins in the Make-a-Wish fountain, and then headed with Kevin over to Kare11 news studio in Golden Valley to drop off a load of toys for Toys for Tots. A bit too dark and cold to take photos there. It was nice to see the two of them enjoy giving toys to others. We will do that again next year.
