I’m not sure if any of you have attempted to take your kids to see Santa at the mall but let me let you in on a little secret…. it’s maddness!!! The lines are usually incredibly long with many kids dreading the entire experience. Luckily our little town offers a wonderful and educational alternative by having their children’s Christmas open house at the Pendleton Library with a surprise visit from Santa and Mrs. Clause. This is a wonderful and relaxed environment to bring your kids in to tell Santa what they want this year. In addition to that there will be cookie decorating, a Christmas craft project, story telling, and balloon animals! What a fun way to get into the Christmas spirit! It all takes place this Saturday (Dec. 1st) from 1:00-3:00 pm at the Pendleton Library in the children’s department. So avoid the holiday mall maddness and get familiar with your local library!
