brunch with Santa

We had the chance to visit Santa on this beautiful steamboat, for breakfast.

WE had to wait a few minutes to board the boat it was a bit breezy on the water, but made the hot tea taste all the better when we did get on:-)

chatting to the big man himself, some of the kids got bashful some got giggling, Shawn he just walked right up and climbed on his lap.

Madeline was a bit embarrassed to sit on Santa's lap, so he put her to work helping him out, since his elf did not show up:-)

it ws a fun chilly way to get in the holiday spirit, good food, good fun and lots of laughs with family.

Holiday Reading

Each Christmas we pick a story or two to read and It is usually one with a study guide and other activities to do. And always has a bible study involved with it.
This season we are Reading The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, and are enjoying it alot it is a funny story. WE are meeting the Herman family of six kids who are ill behaved and a bit neglected, and then they get involved in the Christmas Pageant and they and the town find out what Christmas really means.

Game Time

WE are big time Ravens fans- well living in Baltimore most of us are-. So When we played the Steelers this past weekend we got in our purple and black and cheered them on:-)
