For the past four years, Jake and played the part of Surfin' Santa at our friend's restaurant. The proceeds from the pictures taken go to charity. It's usually straight up during the busy Christmas Saturday bustle, but it's been a great thing for him to be a part of. Tessa asked certain questions this year that led her to certain answers she was ready for regarding Mr. Clause, so we wanted to make sure she had a part in that "creating magic" part of Christmas this year. Our friend Peachy went all out in making Tessa the elf helper, and she had a BLAST. She got to hand out candies and prizes to kids and watch her father play the big guy. She was buzzing about it for a long time afterward.
Plus, how cute is she?!?!
