Over the weekend we were honored to be invited to my brother’s extended in-law family’s annual Santa Party.  There was a plethora of kids there that both Princess Nagger and Little Dude had tons of fun interacting with, and the hubby and I enjoyed mingling with the adult populous (as well as hanging out with the kids from time to time as well).

When it was time for Santa to arrive, the kids waited in anticipation – and were not disappointed.  He was an awesome Santa, definitely keeping the magic alive for the younger kids, including the youngest of the group:


Little Dude couldn’t keep his eyes off the gift that Santa handed him – he was so distracted at the prospect of a present that he almost forgot to tell Santa what he’d like for Christmas:


Princess Nagger was a good sport even though she’s pretty certain she knows who Santa is, but still embraced the magic of it all:


Even my sister-in-law’s brother got in on the fun:


As did her fun-loving mom:


With a gaggle of kids and adults alike, fun was had by all:


I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – it sure is great to be back home amongst my family and friends of old.  This will be a very special Christmas indeed.

Is there an increased party mode with friends and family during the holiday season?

  1. Wow! What a great family party.
    It’s a blessing to have that.

    I hate being alone here.

    No more parties than usual. Mostly church stuff.

    Enjoy this very special time with your family.
