Kids Christmas Party

On December 17, several of us up on our hill put on the second annual Christmas party for some of the local children in town.  Toni & Gib hosted the event again this year.  It was smashing success!  Everyone had a wonderful time.

There were creative activities for the kids, including decorating their goodie bags with stickers and magic markers, and sewing felt stockings together.

A piñata stuffed with candy and treats was a big “hit” with the kids.  The contents sprayed across the lawn, but was picked up by all within seconds.

Gib created his magical snow village which fascinated everyone.

Santa (aka Gib) made a special appearance and heard everyone’s Christmas wishes

Santa’s elves gave out more candy and party favors to each of the kids as they left.  Ellen made special Rudolph candy cane ornaments for everyone too.

We were all exhausted at the end of the day, but planning for next year’s party is already underway.
