Santa came to our home along with 9 little girls in their jammies for Breakfast with Santa. They each sat on his lap for a picture. Isn’t he just the best Santa?

My husband painted wooden frames with chalkboard paint and drilled holes to make holders for two pieces of chalk.

This chalkboard frame gave them an activity to keep busy while all the girls were arriving and also served as a holder for their picture with Santa. We took the pictures at the beginning and then during the party my son and husband printed them and placed them in the decorated frames for each girl to take home.


Each little girl had a special place.


They ate pancakes, sausage and bacon while they
