Last week we had two parties in one day! We started off the morning with our play group and had a Milk and Bookies Christmas party. We all brought new books to donate to a local children’s home. The Milk and Bookies organization provides bookplates, stickers, and helps you find an organization to donate to. What a fun idea for children’s birthday parties, too!
We gathered lots of books for the Children’s Home Society of Florida!
The kids had so much fun decorating cookies. Charlie and Jack worked very hard on their masterpieces for about an hour, and then went back to decorate some more!
I don’t think Jack’s cookie could handle any more decorating.
Margot had lots of fun playing with Elmo in the stroller. All the moms had lots of fun drinking these:
The best hot chocolate ever! Jennifer made it from scratch with dark chocolate, complete with frozen cool whip star! It was seriously amazing. In fact, I could really go for some right now! I wish I got pictures of all the other fun foods and decorations. It was like Pinterest exploded in Jenn’s house, she and Liza really outdid themselves.
Next, we hopped in the car to get to party number two, the EA Christmas party! It is so much fun every year. This year , the theme was “Who-liday,” the Dr. Seuss theme was everywhere, even the “real” Grinch! I’m guessing he came from Universal Studios, because that night we saw a commercial for their Christmas events, and there he was in the exact same costume and makeup!
Margot was shocked to see him!
Charlie was very brave and held his hand
We went to see Santa, too! The line was full of little white whimsy trees.
Margot couldn’t even contain her excitement!
We do not have a good track with Santa pictures. Check this one our from 2010. Surprise! This year we have two happy kids sitting with Santa!
The highlight of the party for Charlie was the snow.
He spent a very long time on the “swippy swidey snow!”
Some Who-ville carolers…
I’ve got to include this one from last year’s party. A live reindeer and Margot in the belly!
What a fun day with family and friends!
