Here Comes Santa Claus

After our busy time out at Ryukyu Mura, the kids, Grammie and I finished the day by going to the Naval Hospital Christmas Tree Lighting. 

This annual event is when they throw the switch on the hospital's Christmas decorations and kick-off the Christmas events.  It's a cute little family time with games set up by the hospital staff, entertainment by the middle school choir and band, and - of course - Santa arriving by firetruck!  (Shouldn't that be in an ambulance since it's the hospital???)

It was also the first opportunity to have a photo with Santa.  Cannon declined and Grammie got caught up in the choir's performance so they missed their photos, but London and Emmy waited in line to put in their requests.  London fretted the whole time not knowing what to ask for, but Emmy knew right away - a border collie (stuffed this year, maybe real next year???)
