The week before Christmas we had an awesome neighborhood party with a visit from Santa!
There are a ton of kids all about the same age - so fun to see them all play together.
These oreo snowman cookies were a big hit --- James probably ate 4 throughout the evening - they may or may not have been used as a bribe when Santa arrived.
Happy to see Santa in the safety of Daddy's arms (and of course with a cookie!)
Checking things out from a safe distance while the other kids got their turn.
When it was James' turn - Daddy had to go up too.
He wasn't so sure, but thought it was hilarious when Santa asked him about Percy and Thomas and even his brother Isaac.
I think this photo captures the "have you been a good boy and nice to your brother?" question/ answer portion!
Most of the kids for a group photo of sorts!
Isaac is the baby on the right.
Santa brought presents too - notice the cookie bribe to go and get close!
Ripping into the present --- Lightning and Chic racers!
And just a couple photos of the controlled chaos!
We had a blast!
Isaac was the life of the party - not sleeping a wink while we were there and being passed around.
Working on standing!
Our plan had been to leave when one of the kids melted down --- all of the kids were so good - we were only the second family to leave and we didn't leave til after 11pm!
It was a terrific night and one we hope is repeated annually!
