Santa Arrived...

Yes, Santa and Mrs. Claus arrived in a horse drawn wagon with Clayton and his horses, Ben and Buster. The wagon was adorned with all kinds of lights, as well as the horses. There were a number of children waiting to see Santa. They had a chance to tell Santa what was on their Wish List. Pictures were taken as well. All of the boys and girls have been very good. Soon Santa will come. Let's hope the little ones get what they wished for.
