An early Christmas

Thanks to the families who came out to the Museum for Pizza with Santa. As Santa's elves (the children) were awaiting for the arrival of their boss, they were busy working on new toys as they assembled and tested Rudolph's Rockets and a fleet of air powered air gliders for The Claus Airlines under the supervision of Chief Elf Helen. They created cards for service men and women spending the holidays overseas and enjoyed singing holiday musical favorite "Jingle Bells" and other seasonal tunes with Ellis and Debi. With the weather being so fall-perfect for November, Santa's flight was on time and he taxied into our waiting area on schedule. He had a surprise passenger - Mrs. Claus! While each child had a private one on one chat with Santa, Mrs. Claus spruced up each elf with their favorite face painting design. The Museum thanks Kevin Walsh and Middle River Aviation, the Baltimore County Commission on Arts and Sciences, and Pedestal Events for their support of these festivities. If you missed this year's event, be sure to include Santa's arrival at the Museum on your 2013 calendar and save the date to launch next year's holiday season.
