Breakfast with Santa

I Love Santa....

Hanging out with Santa

And what do you want for Christmas?
Breakfast with Santa went really well this morning.  A big thank you to the Starbucks staff for cooking the pancakes and providing coffee and hot chocolate.  Thanks also to Super Valu for providing the food and a thank you to Extra Foods, who will be covering the cost of the photos-- we will distribute the photos when the students return from the Christmas holidays.

Thanks also to our photographer Carl Bush.  Thank you to Santa-- we appreciate you taking time to visit with us before you head towards the South Pole!  Merry Christmas to you and Mrs. Claus!
