Lexi with Santa @ The Shrine

Posted in

Saturday was the day and the Kalif Shrine was the place to be if you ever were or are still a kid at heart. Balloons, food, toys, Rudolph, Mrs. Claus and of course Santa were inside the Shrine Auditorium to meet, greet and treat you. Santa had a lot of help from the many Shriner helpers on hand. Lexi in the photo knows first hand as she sits on Santa's (aka Mo Schwartz) knee and tells him what she wants for Christmas.
