Santa's Grotto & Christmas Shopping

Today we went to Santa's Grotto and the kids got to talk to Santa and tell him what they wanted for Christmas.

Connor told Santa that he wanted chocolate coins. Santa asked him what else he wanted, and he said he wanted a racing car. (Later at home, he added chocolate syrup to his list.) Gabby told Santa that she wanted books that have to do with animals or animal toys. Santa asked her if she wants to be a veterinarian when she grows up, but she told him that she wants to be an artist who draws animals when she grows up. Santa told her that he would bring her paints and paint brushes for Christmas too. Isabella told Santa she wanted a Barbie for Christmas and some chocolate.

Then we did some shopping. One of the stores we went into was the Early Learning Centre. The kids love going there and playing with the toys. Gabby and Connor had me take their picture posing as the Early Learning Center elf.

Cameron and Connor really liked the train set.

When we left to go home, we passed by a merry-go-round fair ride and the kids really wanted to ride on it, so we let them.
