This year we visited Santa at Beatrix's school's Holiday Pancake Breakfast. It was a great event that had crafts for children, a basket raffle, a breakfast and (of course) a visit from Santa and his wife. Nana and Mima joined us for the event. We ended up winning four of the raffle baskets - a baking basket, a princess basket, a beer basket and a wine basket! (Thanks to Nana and Mima for all of the tickets.)
Beatrix wasn't feeling especially brave that day (Stranger Danger) so she let Tilly sit by herself on Mrs. Clauses knee and although she was able to tell Santa what she'd like for Christmas we were not able to get her ti sit on his knee.

Beatrix's ballet class

Beatrix's ballet class has been a mystery to us because the teacher does not allow parents to attend classes. Beatrix has also taken a "mum's the word" approach to the whole thing. For Christmas, the school allowed parents to attend a class and we were extremely excited to do so! It was fairly distracting for the dancers to have their families in class but they still did very well paying attention to their teacher, Miss Sarah, and her young helper, Miss Amelia. The ballet class is actually a creative movement class and deals more with stretching and movement instead of typical ballet moves. The have exercises and "routines that they must practice each week. It was nice to see Beatrix in that kind of environment and she seems to really enjoy her class.
