We were lucky to attend two different Christmas parties. The first was hosted by my mom's group. It was fun for all the kids to hang out and enjoy face painting, crafts and Santa! It was the first time this season that anna saw Santa. She wasn't exactly thrilled with his existence. She did love herself some face painting, though. jake, on the other hand, got right into the thick of it and asked for a play do pizza shop. It was so weird that a play do pizza shop was his focus. He wasn't shy about the face painting, either. Looks like I need to break out the face paint to get the kids to calm down.
