Santa Brunch

Post to Twitter .

The boys woke up on Saturday morning and the first conversation went something like this:

Momma:  “Ryan, would you like to go have breakfast with Santa today?”
Ryan:  “Today?  With Santa?  With Santa Claus?”
Momma:  “Yep!  With Santa Claus!  Do you want to go see him and tell him what a good boy you’ve been and tell him what you’re hoping he will bring to you on Christmas?”
Ryan:  “Suuuure!”

And so we moved on to Owen’s room.

Ryan:  “O-wee!!  You want to go eat with Santa Claus today?  You can tell him what you want!”
Owen:  “YES!”
Momma:  “O-wee.  What are you going to tell Santa you want for Christmas?”
Owen:  “Fruit snacks!”

If only the excitement would have continued once we arrive.  Owen was scared to death of the jolly ol’ Saint Nick.


And Ryan really could have cared less.  He was having more fun running around playing outside with his friends.  He was intrigued with Santa and kept a close eye on him, but refused to get near until I told him Santa was giving out candy canes.  That changed his mind.


It changed Owen’s mind too. As we waited in line I asked Owen what he was going to ask Santa for and this time I didn’t get the response of “fruit snacks”, but instead he said “candy cane” ever so nonchalantly.  I guess I can return all the toys that have already been purchased since all he really wants is fruit snacks and candy canes.



I love the heart to heart that Owen and Santa had. It appears to be all business in this conversation.


It was another great neighborhood event. Thank you to everyone who helped make it a success. And a special thank you to Santa Claus for taking time out of his busy schedule to stop by and have brunch with the kiddos.
