Kamrey Reigle, 4, gives Santa a hug today at Oliver's Candies. The store brought Santa to town today along with ponies for the children to ride.

Aubri Dart, 2, wasn't as sure about Santa, even crying rather than get on his lap, as some of the other children did.

Carols, candy and Christmas wish lists were the order of the day Wednesday, when Santa and Mrs. Claus visited Imagination Station Child Care and Preschool in Le Roy. Mrs. Claus read the holiday classic, "A Visit from St. Nicholas," and handed out candy canes as the children took turns on Santa's lap. The children also sang some of their favorite carols, including "Jingle Bells" and "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer."

Supper with Santa, a St. Joseph's School event, has been bringing families and their children together for the Christmas season for over ten years.  Kids of all ages enjoyed some pizza, making cookies, creating ornaments, visiting with Santa and a little live caroling with Kay McMahon and Bill McDonald.

At the end of the night children ate their cookies and had a cup of hot chocolate.

Kay McMahon of the Old Hippies and Bill McDonald of the Ghost Riders, sing a few Christmas songs with the kids as they wait in line to talk to Santa.
