Santa was in Fayetteville NC yesterday! Did you see him?
On December 4th, The Julissa Jumper Real Estate Team hosted our first annual “Cookies with Santa” event for all of our clients and friends and their children.
We had a great time!
The day started with set up and decorating, and at about 12:00, Santa arrived. The children started coming shortly after, and Santa took pictures with each child, gave them a small gift and then the children got to play with their toys, color and share cookies, hot chocolate and spiced cider.
They were all very excited, but as you might expect, quite a few of them became suddenly “shy” when it came time to climb onto the Big Guy’s lap. Still, Santa knows how to deal with children, and he had them all relaxed and smiling for their photos in no time. He did a great job! But, some of the children tested his ability to think fast. The two hardest questions: “I didn’t see it in the parking lot, where did you park your sleigh?” and “You’re supposed to be at the parade at 3:00, how can you be there if you’re here?” Turns out the sleigh was up on the roof of the 4 story building, that’s why you couldn’t see it, and yes, Santa had plenty of time to fly in his sleigh from this event to the parade.
We plan to make this an annual event, and are already looking forward to next year! But, we aren’t going to wait that long to do more–we are planning a “Spring Fling” around Easter time, an ice cream social in the summer, and a hayride for the fall!
We’ll get your invitations early enough for all to plan ahead! Mark your calendars and please plan to join us. We have discovered a great way to spend time with clients, friends and their families, and are excited about what the New Year will bring.
Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year!
