One Down, One to Go!

Last night was the best party ever! We had almost 100 people here (over 50 were kids). Everyone seemed to really have a great time. When Santa came in, the mayhem was overwhelming, but so cute. The kids just went crazy. Here are a few pictures of the night:

Santa makes his big arrival

His helper brings in the loot.

Look at all the kids! Parents and kids alike were so excited.






Santa starts handing out gifts.



Braden was so cute.





Three cutie bugs. The elf hats were for the older kids who were helping with the crafts for the kids, but Cade snagged one. I think they're adorable.


Richard and I had to get a pic too. The boys were long gone.



My nephew, Rylan, was Santa's biggest fan. If it had only been him here, it would have been worth all the work. He was just in love with Santa.




Me and that adorable boy



The afterparty. Some of our guests stayed late. Here is a group of the kids. All boys, but one little girl. That is my life!



That was truly a magical night. It was so much fun to have all our family and friends at our house and to see how excited all the kids were. It will be one of my best Christmas memories. I think it might turn into a tradition.

So, here we go again. Richard's company party is at the house tonight. We're vacuuming floors and washing platters, and will set it all up again. It will be nice, but I know it won't beat last night.

We had so much fun! Rylan loves Santa so much. Can you believe that Santa came on the fire truck this morning I ripped him out of bed and ran out in our pajamas to wave to Santa one more time. This is what I have waited my whole life for! We are off to see Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. See ya soon! Love ya
