Yesterday I went with my children to the mall (in order) to do Christmas shopping. Suddenly, we saw Father Christmas talking with many children. My children went to the queue [US: the line] (in order) to ask for gifts. When it was their turn, they were very happy and each one sat next to Santa Claus. David asked for a race car and Roberto asked for a videogame. I took several photos (of them) (in order) to immortalise this moment.
