It's been a busy couple of weeks for me. But since I much prefer to be busy than bored, this is a good thing! Although, I must say that last Saturday was a bit overwhelming.
See, our Santa's Breakfast at the club where I direct events was Saturday, and we had more people attend than ever before. Usually, at the very most, we will have 100-120 show up. This year we had 180 in attendance - grown-ups plus children waiting to get their picture made with the Jolly Man in Red. It was sheer madness!

It was the first time Bill ever played the role of Father Christmas, and he was a real trooper, even when the young ones screamed in terror, which most of them do from the ages of about 1-3 years of age. And let's face it... who can blame them? Their parents are putting them in the lap of a big, huge man dressed in a red suit and white fur! I'd scream, too, if I were too young to understand that this is a nice man who will be bringing me presents in a couple of weeks.
At any rate, the event went without a hitch, and our photographer extraordinaire, Allison Peatross of Picture This Photography, rocked!
This week I've been catching up with a lot of desk work - resizing pictures and uploading them to our website, filling the 2011 calendar with events, writing copy. It's mostly tedious stuff but I don't mind it, especially after a three-event week. And once I get it all finished, it will be vacation time!!! I have two whole weeks off work to rest, recuperate and spend precious time with family and friends.
It's a wonderful time of year!
