The kids woke up and Ace came downstairs and lit up with excitement! Ellie had brought marshmallows (which she had thrown everywhere!) donuts (which she had sampled) a few frosty friends from the North Pole to hang out, candy canes and hot cocoa.
Ellie had also brought socks for the kids! Ace was adorable asking - "Did Ellie really bring these or is it just pretend?" He knows the reality of Santa and so he's always trying to figure out what is real and what is pretend. It's sweet and I said it's pretend, but we can pretend that it's real! That made him smile that Ellie had brought him socks from the North Pole!
Mae enjoyed dressing up in the table decorations and putting all the marshmallows into her hot chalket. She did not drink any of it. :) Eventually the candy cane went in the drink as well.
Ace had a great time and wanted to eat lunch at the North Pole table too. Sounds good to me, little man! Happy Holidays!!
