There were 76 children and 62 adults in attendance at the "Reindeer Christmas Story Hour" at the Gladstone Library on Dec. 14. Children enjoyed Christmas stories, making a reindeer craft and decorating cookies. Julie Aschbacher provided the music for the children to sing carols. To top off the day, the children were surprised by a visit from Santa Claus. Malia Quigley and Kalli Doutree, pictured at left, are proud of their cookie decorating skills.
Why let some good frosting go to waste even if your decorated cookie is complete? Hannah Trombley knows just what to do with the leftovers.
Harper Adiska doesn’t appear too sure about this bearded Santa guy.
