Breakfast with Santa



The City of Lewisville has a Christmas celebration called Breakfast with Santa. It is this cute festival with booths, rides, petting zoos, ice sculptures, local Christmas performances, etc. It also has Breakfast and Santa, but not at the same place. Santa is over across the street, not anywhere near the breakfast tent, which I thought was kindof deceiving to name their celebration Breakfast with Santa! Santa was only there half the day also, and people would start lining up about an hour before Santa got there, so needless to say, our kids didn't see Santa.

Our kids did get to go in some of the bounce houses, and of course, the pony ride. Some of you might think that this is an easy process, getting your child onto the pony ride. But not for Scott Romney. Because he is probably one of the biggest three year olds anyone has ever seen, he had to get weighed to ride the pony. He had to weigh under 65 pounds, and he luckily weighed in at ONLY 55 pounds (remember he is three)! Here he is proudly riding his horse!

I LOVE your new size for your pics. Great job!!! Lewisville??? That brings back pest control memories.
Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

I love big kids, they're the best. Skylar is the biggest 3-year-old in her preschool class and at church, BY FAR. I just weighed her to see how she compares to Scott and she weighed in at 42 lbs. Do people expect more out of Scott thinking he's like 5? It happens to me all the time; Sky will throw a fit or something and people will look at me wondering why my 12 year old is flopped on the ground.

Trevor's not too far behind Scott. At 6 months he weighs 21 lbs. Gotta love 'em!!

Christy,
Thanks for bringing me back to reality and helping me realize I shouldn't ever complain about Bart being gone. I really wasn't trying to sound like a complainer.

Bart and I love Scott and Stacey and truly enjoyed the pony ride pictures. Paige would have much rather come to Texas' Breakfast with Santa.

So funny. Maybe Scott, due to his size, could have put on a red suit and people would have had breakfast with him?...

And my kids never see Santa, either. So not worth that line.

Too cute. I love the first picture..Stacey looks super scared! I can't believe Scotty is so big and I can't wait to see you in 3 DAYS!!! I can hardly sleep at night, I'm so excited for the next 2 weeks! BTW...Carter is the biggest 2-1/2 year old. I think he looks like he is 4 or 5..you'll see when you see him on Wednesday!!
