The morning was filled with music by Christmascaroler Robin Greenstein, arts and crafts, face painting, cupcakedecorating – with cupcakes donated by The Brooklyn Baker — and ofcourse, pictures with the big man in the red suit.

Guests enjoyed a hearty breakfast of bagels, pancakes, eggs,sausage, fresh fruit, coffee, juice and hot chocolate, courtesy ofone of the academy’s parents who is a chef.
