A couple of weeks ago we took the boys to have breakfast with Santa. It was a fundraiser that some friends of mine put on to benefit Children’s Hospital in Boston and this was the second year that they had this event.
What seems like a million years ago, I worked with this awesome lady named Ellie. Before her & I met, she lost her granddaughter, Emily, to a rare genetic disorder called Zellwegers Syndrome when Emily was just a baby. Because of the care that Emily received from Children’s, the family tries to raise as many funds for the hospital as they can in her memory.
At the event, the kids all got to meet & have a picture taken with the big man himself:
Eat pancakes (regular or chocolate chip) and bacon.
And make crafts:
Each of my two colored in wooden ornaments, which are now hung on my tree, and my oldest made a loom bracelet.
I love that I got to see some old friends, the boys got to meet Santa and it was all for a great cause.
