For Vivian's 2nd birthday, we decided to take the kids to brunch with Santa at Clyde's. They loved checking out the gingerbread house, Santa's sleigh, the gigantic Nutcrackers out front, and all the magic of Clyde's at Christmastime. They were unbelievably well-behaved the entire time. We had to wait for our table, so while we waited the kids got their faces painted - Vivi got a candy cane to match the candy canes on her dress and Owen chose a Santa face. We then waited our turn to sit on Santa's lap, and although she was excited to see him and we thought she might sit on his lap, she was a little scared an opted to just say hello from Mommy's arms instead. Owen told Santa what he wanted for Christmas and then we sat down for lunch. It was such a fun afternoon and the kids really enjoyed getting to see Santa up close. Such a fun tradition we've started.
