Tree Decorating & Visiting Santa

The base hosted a Christmas party yesterday afternoon. It was really nice actually! They gave out lots of little door prizes. Aiden got his very own flashlight and some playdough that I will probably replace with some homemade stuff (this stuff was made in china and while it is certfied non-toxic...I don't like to take that chance as playdough often goes in the mouth). We also got a few ornaments with the Maineiacs Logo on them...which are really cool! And Santa came!

This is the only photo we have of either of the boys even near Santa. We have two polaroids also but those were not much better. Aiden just didn't want to stop moving for a second to say hi to Santa and well...Bennett had your typical 18 month old child reaction. He cried! And sat there saying "No,No,No" the whole time. As you can tell from the Paci in his mouth he was VERY tired.

Other than that the party was enjoyed by them both.

And here is the only tree decorating photo we have. Aiden is just too busy. He put 1-2 ornaments on the tree and then went on to something else. So...not many pics of the decorating process as Erik and I were doing it all. LOL.

And here is a picture of the tree all decorated with the presents under it waiting for the boys to wake in the morning.
