Santa

We had our annual holiday party complete with a visit from Santa. Our friends hosted this year.

Noah tried to hit on Savannah over some Ritz crackers.

Our playgroup is going to a rest home this weekend to sing some carols, so we had a run through of the carols, piano playing and scipture readings.

We finally got Noah to participate even though he wasn't happy about it.

Then, he got happy.

He was happier with Dad though.

Then, Santa came and handed out candy canes.
Photobucket
He brought each kid up on his lap and talked to them.
Photobucket
He reads some nice things about them and one thing they need to work on.
Photobucket
Ben had 1,000 questions for the big guy.

Last year Noah wouldn't even sit on Santa's lap. He did this year.
Photobucket
The girls were having fun listening to the stories.
Photobucket
Noah was totally bored.

Then Santa hands out gifts.

And we got one final picture.

Santa is retiring. He's been coming to our parties for 5 years and will be missed.

Loved this. :) Emily is awesome and has really come a long way on the piano!!! That's excellent!!

It's so great that you have these get-togethers with friends and that the real Santa was there. I'll bet that you will indeed miss him in future years. On a small scale it reminds me of when Santa used to visit the children of our subdivision (organized through the Homeowners Association) and there are some photos of my sisters and I on those visits that are precious to me.

Love, Linda

Great party, great pics and as you know the video of Emily made her Grampie very happy. That little Noah is a trip . He looked right at home playing up to his little girl friend. Looks like he already knows all the moves, being sweet and charming over a delicious meal. Too cute. ☼
I'm sure Santa will be missed , even I have come to recognize and look forward to his presence(presents) each year. I know the kids will miss him, maybe he can be persuaded to make an appearance in the future.....
Love,
