Yesterday I had a little Christmas party for the kids complete with a visit from Santa! My mom used to do the same thing for my brother and me when we were little so I have been so excited for my kids to be old enough to enjoy it and begin the little tradition myself. Christopher is at the perfect age right now and I know Lucy will grow into it in a couple of years. He had an absolute ball and I loved every minute of it. We had a few crafts for the kids, lunch, and of course the chance to sit on Santa's lap and get a picture. There were just enough kids here to effectively call it "organized chaos" but I think everyone had a good time.

The pictures do a great job of capturing the wonder and excitement of all the children. You did a great job and I am so proud of you. Building traditions and memories for a lifetime. I love you! Mom
