Pajamborie Party

Our advent activity for Dec. 15 was to go downtown to a Pajamborie party.  The girls got to wear their new Christmas pajamas.  (I couldn't resist letting them have them now instead of waiting until Christmas Eve.)  We ate some yummy cookies, made some fun Christmas foam crafts, watched a bit of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer with a bunch of other cute kiddos and waited for THE MAN.
THEN he came! We jumped into line and Pumpkin peaked around everyone trying to get a glimpse of Santa Claus. The girls were so excited, armed with their letters that we had just written to him.
DSC07396 was our turn and oh boy, they were thrilled to see him!
He was so merry and jolly and just what they had expected him to be.
He read their letters and chatted with them for a little while. Please check out that grin on Peanut's face...utter DELIGHT!
After visiting with Santa the kids got to have a massive snowball fight with each other using huge cotton batting balls. The girls had a ball with this.
What a fun night filled with some really fun memories for both the girls and I!
We were sure to walk around the block afterwards to see the amazing lights on display. Our downtown is absolutely gorgeous this time of year with white lights twinkling everywhere. The trees look like they are covered in sparkling diamonds. I LOVE it!
