Neighborhood Christmas Party
This past weekend our neighborhood had their annual Kids Christmas party. It was so fun! We were one of the first people to get there and man oh man was Magnolia one lucky girl that night. We were standing in the hallway and she spotted Santa just coming in. She very politely tugged on my shirt and said "mom! Look over there! I see someone special!" I looked and saw Santa just smiling at her. He must have heard her because he came up to here and asked if she wanted to be his special helper. He took her hand and put a bell in it and told her to ring it. She then got to walk hand in hand with Santa into the room where everyone was waiting. She got to be the first one to sit on his lap and they just really chatted it up! Let me tell you, she was on cloud nine! After that we went and did some crafts and then were able to go on a horse drawn wagon ride around the neighborhood to look at Christmas lights. It was perfect. Nice night with a little chill in the air but not cold. We then went in, got some apple cidar and went and picked up some pizza from our local pizza place and walked home. The spirit of Christmas was going strong that night!
