I realize I haven't blogged a single bit this December (I'm still catching up in November) so I'm just going to do one big post that encompasses this fun month.
December has been a blast and it is totally true that Christmas is more magical when there are children around. We have been busy with holiday parties galore... some for children, some for moms, some for couples, and some to show off those tacky Christmas sweaters!!!
We started off December with a visit with Santa. Elise did okay with the man in the red suit. It wasn't love at first sight, but she warmed up to him.
Then we went to a party geared towards the children, though us moms had a great time too!!! Christmas on Castellani was hosted by Erin and Alecia at Alecia's lovely home. There were 7 kids and all had a blast!
Alecia's spread for the kids; isn't she creative?!
Elise sitting at the "big" kids table!!! I couldn't believe it! She ate her entire lunch sitting in that chair.
Though in true Elise fashion, her manners left a lot to be desired.
Here's a picture of the 4 "babies." I didn't get one with the three toddles :(. This one was hard enough to snap. And not very successful you'll notice.
"But I don't want to go home and take a na-na-nap!"
Ha; she slept for 3.5 hours straight when we got home. It was a wonderful way to start the holidays! (the party, not the nap.)
I also attended Melanie's "No Diapers to Change, Just Cookies to Exchange" party and had a lovely time visiting as the wine flowed! I came home with some yummy treats.
