We ended up going to LapLandUK after the kids received personalized invitations from Santa's elves to come assist in the building of toys due to a shortfall of toys for the high percentage of children that had been good this year. They couldn't wait. Once we arrived, we were greeted by elves, taught elf songs and elf waves, and went off to build toys in Santa's workshop. Sadly they didn't get to keep the teddy bears they built since the toys were to be passed out to good children on Christmas eve. After that, decorating gingerbread men and ice skating kept them busy. The huskies that were roaming around were good fun and a favorite as well. Both kids wrote new letters to Santa and then we were off to meet him. The kids were so happy that he knew all about them (best friends, class year, favorite lovely's name, etc). He assured them he would bring them their presents to the ranch and all the world became a better place instantaneously.
