On the Saturday before Christmas Matthew, Cameron and I went to the library for story time with Santa. We listened to the librarian read two stories and then right in the middle of Santa Claus is Coming to Town Santa came jingling in! He read Twas the Night Before Christmas and when he asked who wanted to sit on his lap Matthew was the first one in line (much to my surprise since Matthew had refused to go near Santa at his school's holiday party the week before). After the stories every child received a Christmas book and a bag filled with fun treats to promote literacy - it was my kind of event! Cameron wasn't sure what to make of the whole thing, but he was fairly content to sit on my lap and watch what was going on.
