Joshua Foundation - Breakfast with Santa 7th Dec 2008

My final troop of this year, which is nice as their Breakfast with the Easter Bunny was my first troop of this year.

As well as star wars characters (Vader, 2 x TK, TIE Pilot 3x Jedi) we also had Will Turner fro Pirates of the Caribbean and Batman :)

The weather was distinctly chilly as we waited at the main entrance of the hotel from 10:30 for the kids and their families to arrive, so we took it in turns to escort them around to the lakeside pavilion (frozen lake today) for the party.

Once they all arrived we all hung out in the pavilion mingling with the families and making sure everyone was having a good time. We had a short lids off break when Santa arrived and handed out gifts then headed back for the last of the party games.

Some of the kids had been released from hospital specially to attend the event and it was great to see them all enjoying themselves even though many were obviously poorly (unfortunately not all the families could make it to the event as some kids conditions had gotten worse and they had to be re-admitted to hospital  :( )

We finished for about 14:30 and were giving a good breakfast of sausage, bacon, eggs, beans, tomatoes, fried bread, and bread & butter with tea, coffee and orange juice.

A quick group photo on the Hotel staircase before setting off home, and I even made it back in time for Phantom Menace on TV
