Redlands 2nd Ward Pancake Breakfast

This morning we headed out to the church for our Christmas Pancake Breakfast with the ward. I thought: Wow this is great, my kids will actually eat pancakes. So when I see that they made french toast instead I knew I would have to figure out a way to keep my kids from freaking out. Well I just called them "Bread Pancakes" and that seemed to do the trick. Whew!  After breakfast Bishop Strong entertained the kids with a great game of Reindeer, Reindeer, Elf, the Christmas version of duck, duck, goose. Then we listened to the Nativity story and sand songs. Then it was time to visit with "you know who". The kids were so excited to see Santa. All Trevor wanted to do was to ask him for a Thomas Discovery Train Set. This year is so much fun. I love to see their simple belief and trust in Santa. To know he truly exists in the hearts and minds of children just makes me smile. To be a kid again.

Do you believe? We do!
