I must have been a very good girl this year, because not only did I get to see Santa, I got to take his picture … and the Mrs. too! These are our good friends, Bob and Kathy Bassick — aka, Mr. and Mrs. Claus FOR HIRE. They have grandkids out of state so in order to enjoy other people’s kids at the holiday season, they came up with this great idea. They have no set fee — simply make any donation to help cover gas and candy cane expenses. 🙂 We secured Santa last year to come to our home and surprise our grandkids (and everyone else) at our Mouser family dinner and it was so much fun for all of us. We bought the gifts and wrapped them, then set them outside for Santa to carry into the house. The gifts were a bit big for his bag and we laughed our heads off watching him try to get them back out of the bag. Bob makes a wonderful Santa and the kids were in awe. Sydney was his best friend as soon as that candy cane came out. You can see the pictures here. Not to miss out, Kathy is joining in the fun this year as well. Doesn’t she make the perfect Mrs.! If you are interested in securing either Santa or Mr. and Mrs. Claus for your holiday event, family dinner, or home visit, please call them direct at 477-3200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re doing it again! Can you say “HO! HO! HO! and a Merry Christmas to ALL!
