Breakfast with Santa

Alternate Title: The highest sugar high my kids have ever been on.

For the third year in a row we got ready very early in the morning to dine with Santa and Mrs. Claus for breakfast at Chocolate World. My sister, Sally and her son, Jacob came with us as well as Sally's Mother-in-Law and Sister-in-Law with Sally's niece, Olivia.

Charlotte was so excited about this event. Grammie helped her to type up her Christmas list the night before and had her menu all planned out. She was going to eat "chocolate chip pancakes with hershey kisses on the side and hot chocolate to drink."

We were greeted by my personal favorite, Reeses Peanut Butter Cups.


Max wanted nothing to do with the oversized chocolate bar and Jacob was cowering behind Sally VERY far away. Poor kid was terrified of the characters and Santa. This breakfast was pretty much his nightmare. Good thing Max was there to provide some support.


We were seated at our table and Max consumed 3 or 4 Hershey Kisses before I could put my coat down.


Charlotte immediately started decorating a cookie.


We decided to go visit the big guy first, before we ate. Max handed Santa his list, but refused to sit on the sleigh.


Then I went to the different stations trying to find the chocolate chip pancakes and hot chocolate to accompany Charlotte's Hershey kisses. She ended up not eating much because she was too busy playing bingo. All of the sudden she yelled out "BINGO". I've never seen a child so happy. This was the first year we've won the bingo game that they play while everyone eats. What do you win? A giant chocolate bar of course!


After breakfast we sat at the table talking and packing up our chocolate into to-go containers.


We headed over to the 3D show, which Charlotte and Max loved. We did the tour of Chocolate World after that. Then, it was time to go. Everyone was coming down from their sugar highs and needed to rest a while. It is always a fun time. This year was especially fun because both Charlotte and Max were old enough to really enjoy it.
