Breakfast with Santa

Two Saturday's ago, Santa comes to Grabill so the kids can eat breakfast with him. So, we got up early and were in Grabill by 8 a.m. because Garrett had a basketball game right after. So at the door, we were greeted by a reindeer. Then they had donuts and cereal.
You can see the donut evidence on Mekie's face. Then shortly after eating Santa arrived. Ash went crazy with laughing. And the rest smiled and waited for Santa to come shake their hand. Mekie shook his hand like it was no big deal.
Ash was too shy to shake santa's hand but he gave him his famous smile.
Below is a picture with each of the kids on Santa's lap. This was the year that each child sat on Santa's lap with out crying. Last year, Ethan wouldn't even get close without crying. This year he crawled right up on Santa's lap and told him he wanted "a tractor", Santa said, "What color?" Ethan said, " uh, green, no, no red!" Ash asked for a reindeer and a monster truck, Garrett a DS and Mekie a doll house. Oh, I forgot to tell you that Ash was so excited to sit on Santa's lap that the line was starting to form and he ran right to the front of the line to sit on his lap. I felt bad because my child cut in line but he was on Santa' s lap before I could tell him to stop.

On one final note, we got a call on December 8th telling us that our adoption is final in the States. We are so excited to have that done. We will now be able to get US passports and Birth Certificates. So, it was such great news to have!!! Yeah.
