Santa Came!!

Our second Christmas party was last night. It was lots of fun, but I am SO glad it's behind me!! Last year, this party was an absolute blow-out. So many people, so much food, too much work! This year, I cut the guest list WAY down. The only people I invited were those that I didn't need to impress ;) We had a great time and the kids, of course, enjoyed Santa.

My niece, Auden, is so unbelievably cute!! Check out that bow!! There is a jingle bell in the center that jingled when she moved...too cute!!

Mrs. Clause came this year and read "The Night Before Christmas" to the kids. So sweet.
My nephew, Rylan, was Santa's biggest fan again this year. He sat on the sofa with Braden and was so excited.
Here he is about to get his gift from Santa. So sweet!!

The boys. Next year Wesleigh will be in this picture!!

My long-time best friend Rachel (below). Her kids are in the picture above with mine. They are great friends and love each other so much.

It was a great night. I ended up with a couple extra boys for the night, but they all had a blast. Tonight Richard and I are going on a date. It has been WAY too long since we've been able to do that, and who knows when we'll be able to do it again! I can't wait!!
So hoping our TA comes in this week! We have all our passports in and paperwork is in order. We're ready to go!!!

I have tears in my eyes and now actually rolling down my face...FIRST...your niece Auden and your nephew Rylan are the CUTEST lil things. I LOVE the photo of Braden with Rylan. SO SO cute.

Secondly, when you wrote that next year Wesleigh will be in that photo, i lost it. You are so close, jennifer! I am so glad the party went well. You were smart to cut the list. We had so many people that we could not even chat with them all.
