Christmas Parties 2014

I usually only over-plan for Halloween (Pumpkin Patches | Fall Festival | Zoo Boo | ArBOOretum | Ren Fest). Thanksgiving and Christmas time are usually more low-key for us. We still have plenty of fun though.

Christmas Party at Daddy’s Work

I’m not usually one for company family holiday parties, but figured this might be an easy (free) way to learn how Grace would deal with Santa this year (2013 | 2012 02 | 2012 01).

Oh, THIS year? She is cool with it all.

We HAD to get her face painted (which she had a reaction to, though was fine) and a balloon animal.

Church Christmas Party

Our church hosted their annual holiday party. I provided four types of cookies (because who only bakes ONE?) and two of the kids’ craft projects, so we felt that we should attend.
