Childrens Christmas Party

(Devin, D.J., Mrs. Claus, Santa, Maddy 12/3/2007)

The company my husband works for throws an annual Childrens Christmas Party for the kids of its' employees at no cost. They rent an entire dome/stadium and fill it to the top with games, rides, and activities. This was our second year and the kids had a ball.

We arrived fifteen minutes early and found ourselves in a short line. Our mission was for the boys to go with me to the Laser Tag arena first and Maddy and Dad were to hit the 'BIG' slide before the lines got too long and we were to meet back at Santa's.

Unlike last year, Maddy didn't scream at the site of the jolly, red-suited old man, though it did take a minute or two to convince her it was alright to sit on his lap and to tell him what she wanted for Christmas.

Dinner consisted of tater-tots, mandrian oranges, pretzels, olives, and carrots- all finger foods and all kids' favorites. The kids frosted cookies, played as many carnival games to their little hearts content. Devin and D.J. harnessed up on the bungie/tramp jump without batting an eyelash and proceeded to do front flips, back flips, and with the assistance of the workers, fly like Superman. Maddy spent a lot of time in the jump house or climbing the kiddie obstacle course.

It was a perfect way to spend F.H.E. Monday night and have plans to attend again next year. It's nice to work for a company that cares about their employees kids.
