We've been able to cross a few more things off our Christmas bucket list! Starting with a visit to see Santa! Let me preface this by saying I knew how this was going to go. Kason is a big fan of Santa pictures, status, or on TV, but in real life...NOT a fan! He has a huge fear of anything that's dressed in a costume, has it's face painted, or just looks off.
We took Kason to our local gym to see Santa. It was free, and I knew he'd scream, so it was perfect for us. As soon as Santa came out and walked by Kason, the screamed started. He stopped for a few minutes, but as soon as we got close to Santa, the screaming and shaking started again. I handed him to someone, who put him on Santa's lap for literally 10 seconds and this was the result....
Maybe next year will go better....:).
We also had our small group Christmas party. We joined this group in September and have LOVED it. It's perfect fit for us, and we love growing and learning with this group. We got together for pizza and games, and of course, a white-elephant gift exchange. It was so much fun!
Another list item was craft making. We made some stockings and attempted to make an ornament. Kason LOVED it! :)
