A group of cute little ones recently had some special northern guests at their Christmas party...Mr. and Mrs. Claus came to play!

Everyone had some one-on-one time to talk about the year, what they wanted under their tree, and received a sweet gift. When it was time to head outside, Santa was right there to help push the see saw and distribute plenty of hugs. For story time, "The Night Before Christmas" was read by the expert on the old tale.

As if the giggles of elated children weren't enough to warm one's heart, it was especially precious to watch the children who were timid at first warm up to Santa and Mrs. Claus. Definitely my personal favorite memory from the evening!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas holiday and a blessed 2018. I have a feeling all of these kiddos will have some goodies in their stocking on Christmas morning. ;)
