Our neighborhood (that I LOVE) throws a little Christmas bash up the street from us every year and we actually went this year! They had face painting, hot cocoa, fake snow, a snow slide and of course, SANTA! We had the inside scoop with Santa this year - a professional photographer that is a good friend of mine. Check out her stuff at http://www.suzanneboxphotography.com/. She graciously voided the $5 picture fee. Thanks Suzanne!!!!
