The Scoop on Saturday with Santa!

The Christmas season has officially arrived...and so has Santa! Mr. Claus made a special stop at CMOM Saturday- his sleigh was in the shop for last minute paint touch-ups, but we lent him a helicopter to make sure he made it to Memphis on time!
Here are a few more pictures from the day - it was so much fun! Special thanks to all our volunteers (shown helping with crafts & caroling and visiting Santa, too) who helped make the day so great!

Kids themselves had the official job of cutting the ribbon and also entered a drawing for some of the awesome toys available at the shop. YAY for TOYS! Don't forget Christmas is coming up - get ready to make your kids super happy! Stop by and check out it out!

Thanksgiving at Bikini Bottom = AWESOME

Wow...I know it took WAY too long to get these up, but they're totally worth it. Spongebob's visit to CMOM was a blast - take a look at some of the pictures and see for yourself!

Look at the line! Over 1,000 people showed up to meet the Bobster(we became such good friends he even let me use that awesome nickname I came up for him).

Look at this guy...he was so excited he brought his own Spongebob to meet the real deal. Cute!

Even the grown-ups were happy to meet Mr. Squarepants!

Bouncy things! I love them, especially when Spongebob gets to hang out, too!

Craft time! We made all kinds of cool things to take home - here, some kids colored picture frames for the photos they had taken with the most popular guy from Bikini Bottom.

Everyone loved the, my friend Alden joins in the Sea-side Sack Race.
