Hello Halton, Toronto, Hamilton, Brantford, St. Catharines, Niagara, Welland, Thorold real estate investors!!!
It’s December, so we’re full swing into holiday mode!!!! Christmas lights are clipped into our eavestroughs, our light up Santa got blown over on our front lawn, the usual! This year we started a new tradition, the Royal Botanical Garden’s Santa’s Signature Experience. My wife booked it after reading the rave reviews on a Facebook mom’s group, and the experience lived up to the hype.
It included a return trip on The RBG Express (a train ride), hot chocolate and a cookie, storytelling and crafting with Santa’s helpers, admission to RBG for the day’s activities, and of course your visit with Santa.
Santa’s Cabin was off the hook! It had a beautifully decorated fireplace, giant tree, and, the star of the show, Santa!! Santa asked my kids if they knew they had brought Christmas magic with them. My kids had no clue what he was talking about, but then Santa reached behind my daughters ear and illuminated a light within his glove between his index finger and thumb. The look of astonishment on my kids faces made me nearly lose my composure. I couldn’t have been happier with the experience, but my daughter had more in store for us.
A few days later, we asked my daughter what she wanted for Christmas and she said “I want a Lego Cookie Monster to give away at the Basket Brigade.”
Mission accomplished!!!! Christmas can end now and I’d be happy. Part of our objective with our charity is to teach the kids to be selfless, and I believe the best teaching is done by showing, not telling. My daughter is not even 4 years old and she knows the meaning of Christmas. Proud parent moment!!
Here she is with Anna and Elsa dolls (from the Frozen movie) we bought with our own money to give away on our personal deliveries.
In case you’re interested in an opportunity to teach your kids and to give back, we need a few more packers and are in need of 25 more delivery drivers. To avoid disappointment, please register ASAP. Hamiltonbasketbrigade.com
