|I've been teaching the kids how to play chess. Well, not really how to play because I don't play chess, but I'm teaching them how the pieces move and how to take off other pieces and put the king in check. I think it's a skill everyone should know.|
|The first Saturday in December we had breakfast with Santa. This is only the second year we've done it. The kids let me take pictures of them first.|
|The boys were ready first.|
|Some days everyone gets along, other days...|
|I bought tickets for everyone, but one child did some things that just couldn't be ignored or excused and put herself on the naughty list.|
|After seeing Santa, there is a breakfast line. It has cereal, fruit, eggs, bacon and pancakes! I didn't take a picture of it, so you'll to look at us instead :)|
|There was a pretty good Santa this year. I should have had the kids go back up one at a time for photos since he was still there, and there was no one in line. Last year they hurried everyone through.|
