Santa Claus Came To Town!

Hannah played Santa at a local orphanage ...

Hannah passed out presents to the babies and even held a little three month old. So tight!
It was a wonderful experience to have with Hannah. It is something I hope she will remember and that we can do every year! :)

The Rhodes Family played Santa!

A picture of all of us with Florence (my housekeeper) and her whole family. We spent the day after Christmas at our house for lunch, visiting and the Simwa family opening their first of many gifts. They had some from us, but most of them were from all of you! Thank you friends and family! Thank you especially to Christin and Justin. It was magical!
They said they had never experienced anything like this before and that this was the best Christmas they had ever had.
(More to follow on Florence and their special Christmas soon!)

Santa...at the Westgate Mall.
She LOVED this Santa's helper, cant you tell? She was afraid of the other Santa's we got to meet. Go figure.
