Day of Christmas Parties! (Actually from Dec 4th)

Saturday was a party day for us!  We had a Holiday Party with HVPOM in the morning.  The kids sang Christmas Carols and got to meet Santa!  They loved the singing party, there was a lady playing the guitar that handed out jingle bells for them to ring.  Claire talked about the “jingy bells” for days!  Santa read them a story and all the kids (except mine) sat quietly and listened.  Matthew & Claire danced around in circles so hopefully they weren’t too disruptive…  They would quite sit on Santa’s lap but stood reasonably close to them and Susie was able to snap a picture for me.

We went to my friend Jenny’s family Santa Barn in the afternoon.  Jenny’s Aunt and Uncle put on Santa Barn every year and give all the donations to a worthy cause.  There was a fire truck ride and real reindeer.  We again attempted a photo with Santa (I’ll have another post about that).  My friend Nichole suggested we each place a twin on Santa’s lap backwards so they don’t actually see his face, then snap the photo quickly.  It sort of worked…

We wrapped up the day at Ciara’s second birthday party.  The kids had a great time playing with their friends and kept it together even though they really didn’t take naps that whole day.  The kids loved the piñata!  They were running around scooping up the candy (how do they even know what it is???) Someone had unwrapped a sucker for Claire and she was happy as could be, so I let Matthew try a piece of chocolate!  Unfortunately, I didn’t get many photos at Ciara’s party since I was busy baby-wrangling most of the evening!  Matthew was a little bit upset at the party because there were lots of people there that he didn’t know, but all in all it was a good day.

  1. Hahaha! You know, I thought all of the other children but MINE were sitting quietly and listening to Santa read the story. ;-) I never even noticed Matthew and Clair spinning in circles. :-)
