Truth be told I didn't want to see Santa at all.  I mean if you really think about it, its a really odd tradition.  Forcing your kid to sit on some random man's lap.  I wasn't going to do it, but jake asked and really wanted to tell him he wanted a play do pizza shop.  Then I started thinking about how I had no desire to stand in line at the mall.  Enter breakfast with Santa.  It was sweet.  Mostly because theSanta part took like 2 minutes.  Brunch was awesome.  Basic brunch stuff with the addition of salmon, filet, pork tenderloin, shrimp, cheese cakes, dozens of sweets and so much other stuff we didn't get to try.  It was a bummer.  We had no idea it was going to be so good.  We didn't adequately prepare our appetites.  Talk about a bummer.
