We had such a fun evening at our church Christmas Party! So much time and planning was put into this great event. Hailey could not wait to see Santa! The week prior to the party Hailey would tell me all about how she was going to tell Santa what she wanted. We had a discussion about how she could mention only a few of the things that she wanted. She explained to me that she didn't know how many a few was so I told her two or three. She planned out exactly what she wanted and then narrowed it done to a final three. 1) Cupcake Maker 2) Baby that uses the potty 3) Dot Maker Machine (?). Sure enough, she told Santa exactly what she wanted.
The primary children sang a few Christmas songs and they did great. I love how Isabella wanted to be up there with her sister (she always has her "burpy" and her "binky" with her!)
Hailey has grown into 4 1/2 very nicely. As she gets closer to 5 she is becoming more and more fun to have a round. She is very responsible and is always looking to help me out.
Who could resist those kisses? Isabella is still a sweet and snuggly little girl. She loves her family so much and has also built relationships with a few of my friends! These kids really do make this time of year so special. Christmas wouldn't be near as fun without them!
Just a side note: All three of my children were asleep by 6:30 tonight!! That is especially great because I have a newborn and newborns do not usually go to sleep so early! I enjoyed a quiet evening folding laundry and watching a movie while John was helping out at tithing settlement.
