Gone shoppin'

Santa Claus is coming to town... or perhaps, he's already here. We keep running into him all over the place. Here he is at a local market...
We saw Santa on a camel at breakfast. In the afternoon we headed out to a charity drive Christmas bazaar. We had to buy tickets to get in, vendors had to pay a fee to sell, food and raffle tickets were also sold - all proceeds going to charity, thanks to the Maadi Women's Guild.
The big field, where the event was held, was filled with tables of crafts and other nice things.
It was hot out... and too bright to look at the camera! We barely made it through before the kids got completely shopped out and wanted to go home. Brad and I enjoyed shopping though.
And guess who else showed up at the bazaar? Santa and his wife sure are great folks... to show up in this weather in fur... oh my! ... Thank you to the Claus family. The kids were able to forgive us the shopping after you showed up.

I haven't been to any christmas bazaars here! Which is kind of weird since i was always on the organizing committees in our previous posts. HOpe you found some good buys! :)

Brian doesn`t look like he`s QUITE forgiven you in that last photo! :D That looks like a very cool bazaar.

Sounds like fun Aunt Connie. It's hard to believe Santa went to Egypt. Is it hot there all year?

Hi Julia,
Yep... Santa even visits Egypt. It doesn't get too cold here. It may get down in the 40's at night during December through February, but that's about it.

Have you ever watched Norad Tracks Santa on the internet? It's fun, and you may want to get it set up ahead of time so you can surprise your little siblings :-)
