Santa Comes To Town

I decided that this year, we would have another Santa party.  We haven't hosted one since Wesleigh came home, and the girls are the perfect age.  Yesterday was the big day!  We decided to make it a breakfast because it seemed simpler...and it was.  It was perfect!!  My girls didn't even know that Santa was coming, so they were floored when he walked in the house.  This post has LOTS of pics, but they are too cute not to share.

These little Santa's were the hit of the party :)  The idea is from Pintrest, of course, and Richard actually made them for me!  Do you see that he made some of the Santas Asian!  lol...  BTW...they were as yummy as they are cute!!  I won't tell you how many I ate!

I had way too much food!  I don't think the kids ate anything because they were so excited.

Gracie was all about Santa this year!  She checked him out from head to toe and could not keep her hands off him.  She was so cute.

Wesleigh loved Santa too, but she was a little shy.  She even talked about being shy when she looked at these pics.  She started crying when Santa told one of the moms that she was on the naughty list!  She said, "Santa say a mean thing to Camille's mommy!"  So funny!

Braden had his friend-girl over for the party.  Her face turned 10 shades of red when I made them get up there!  So cute.

We sang Happy Birthday to Jesus.

It was perfect, and it definitely put this mom in the Christmas spirit.  I'm so glad we did it!!
