Scenes from Santa's Visit to our Store

We had such a wonderful time when Santa visited our store! Many children came to sit on his lap, share what they wanted for Christmas and enjoy cookies and juice. It was fun for all of us both young and old! We are hopeful that we can make this an annual tradition with Santa at our store. We'll have to see if we stay on his "nice" list!

Happy Holidays!
