Last Saturday we joined Santa and his elves for breakfast at the McMenamin's Crystal Ballroom in downtown Portland. Breakfast with Santa is pretty self explanatory. The kids each got a chance to sit with Santa and tell him what they want for Christmas. Here's what the kids had to say about it all:
Marshall: My favorite part was not sitting on his lap. And getting a balloon sword. (yes, that's right, Marshall refused to get anywhere near Santa. He decided that 6 years old is just too old for talking to Santa).
Eliza: My favorite part was going up there with Santa and telling him I wanted Barbies. And my flower balloon. (Oh yes, thank you Santa for telling me daughter that Barbies are a GREAT choice and that she would be getting them for Christmas. Not so much.)
Jameson just says: Thanks Papa Greg and Nor-Nor for the really cute Christmas outfit :)
The best picture I could get of all three kids:
Our family in front of the bicycle sculpture by McMenamins. Very Portland, isn't it? My kids loved it.
