Hohoholiday party

We had an immediate family Chrismas party last night at Geoff and Ky's house. We missed celebrating with Beau, Nichole & kids and Shawn, Lisa and kids. The timing just didn't work out this year for everyone to be together.  We made due and the kids had a blast all the same. It was a nice surprise to see Aunt Julie, Uncle Mike & Karen and Ky's parents Pam and Doug. We sure had fun.

Like a dummy I didn't get a big group picture. Ug, I wish I had.

There was excellent food & desserts, fun games, white elephant, and a visit from Santa. 

Nicholas was so thrilled to see Santa. His eyes lit up the second he saw him and he proceeded to tell Santa all about his elf. Santa remembered sending an elf to Nicholas and the dialogue they had about "elfie" was super cute. Nicholas asked for a flashlight friend, and surprise, he magically recieved one. A Christmas miracle! The older boys were happy to see Santa too. They both enjoyed sitting on his lap and listing their Christmas wishes. Look how big Andrew is?! Right now he is almost 5'8" (he has grown 3 inches in the last year). The bigs boys recieved Legos and were happy. Ben spent the rest of his evening putting his set together.

Geoff & Ky... Thanks for hosting such a fun party!
