This Christmas was a beautiful time, FULL of get togethers, parties, activities and about as much fun as our little family could handle.
Bert's work was the first of the events ... we gathered for a fun kid's lunch and a visit with Santa
And what kind of parents would we be if we didn't subject the little one to such torture???
Some had their faces painted:
Some got balloon thingies:
(nothing quite says Peace on Earth like a big balloon bazooka - right???)
And some just enjoyed the fun atmosphere:
A few days later we gathered with some friends and went caroling through the neighborhood.
This really was one of the best evenings I had this Christmas season. Singing seems to bring the spirit of Christmas into your life more quickly then most other activities. And our neighbors even seemed to appreciate our stopping by that evening.
Thing 1 had her School Choir Concert:
and The Boy had his Preschool Program:
And then there were the parties ... LOADS of parties!
