Tea with Mrs Claus

Mrs Elliott held a fundraising event for kids at Balay Coffee, Espresso, and Bubble T on Sunday. Called  "Tea With Mrs Claus," it was an opportunity for some of Bend's little ones to sing songs, sip hot cocoa or cider, snack on Christmas cookies, have their pictures taken with Mrs Claus and tell her what they would like Santa to bring them, and take home some little gifts. 

A lot less freaky than sitting on the fearsome old man's lap. 

Even so, one little lad totally forgot what he wanted for Christmas when his turn came to be  seated next to Mrs Claus, a la Ralphie in A Christmas Story

Parents donated $20 per child and all the proceeds went to the Boys and Girls Club of Bend, and CASA of Central Oregon. 

The event was supported by Balay, KPOV, Center for Car Donations, Goody's, Leapin' Lizards Toy Co., FedEx Kinko's, and Powell's Sweet Shoppe. 

Mr Elliott played helper and did the photography. 

The little ones had a swell time.
