Party Time

Hey, my cd drive suddenly started working, so here's some catching up...

Two weekends ago we had the chance to go to our very first Christmas Party for the kids. It was put on by CH's work, and we'd heard it was pretty amazing. It did not disappoint.
It was huge to begin with, but very well planned with lots of activities for all ages, lots of food, and they staggered the times throughout the day, so it wouldn't be too crowded.
Since The Bug and The Bee are still on the young side, it was quite a lot for them just to walk around and take everything in. They had face painting, and cookie decorating, and picture frame painting, and pictures with Santa, as well as some older activities.
I think eating themselves silly with little oranges was a big highlite! They also had really great gifts for every child. It was all very impressive.
One of our favorite things was at the main door as we stopped on the way out. They had real reindeer! And we got to pet one! Who has real reindeer at their Christmas party?! WE DID!

Wow real reindeer I'm so jealous. That is so cool!!!! Jane would be so excited - she loves deer and is always pointing them out whenever they are in a book and we have a Raffi Christmas book where Santa's reindeer are getting dressed in long underwear and she thinks they are so cool.
