Sunday Cuteness

Evan has this new phrase that he likes to use. Instead of being happy he is cute. It all started one day when I was questioning him about his behavior prior to allowing him out of his room where he was being punished. "I am not sad, I am cute now" was his reply to me asking if he was done whining and crying about some imagined slight. This phrase has made it into his regular vocabulary and I find it rather.. well... cute.

Yesterday my husband's work had a kid's holiday party. It was mind numbingly boring for the adults, but the kids had a fun time. Santa even came and brought books (secretly supplied by the parents) for the kids. They even had some people doing balloon animals for the kids. With the amount of popping that was going on I could tell there was a balloon animal slaughter going on.

They got to "decorate" their own cookies which was basically spreading frosting on the cookie and then adding sprinkles.

The big guy himself. He stopped and talked to many of the kids Evan included but some guy got in the way of my shot of him talking to Evan. Santa was played by a guy that my husband works with and according to him that belly is not padding. Also that other kid standing next to Harry was quite the.. um how shall I say it?.. "active" little boy. My husband sometimes moans about the kids misbehaving but they were perfect angles compared to that kid.

I will have more pictures of the boys and Santa but not right away. There was a photographer at the event so I have to wait to get the close up pictures. Harry surprised me and actually sat on Santa's lap this year instead of freaking out like he did last year.

That is really cute!

The party looked to be pitched just right for people about two feet tall!

How are you feeling these days? Are you getting your energy back?

Ohhhh, those pictures are so cute and isn't it about the children's enjoyment, not ours with many of these things? We went to our ward's Christmas party yesterday and they dropped the ball on getting a Santa suit. So they had the kids walk up to a stuffed Santa and tell him what they wanted for Christmas. LAME!

I am in awe at how old Evan looks in the cookie picture! They are growing up so fast!

I brought my grandson to see Santa yesterday too. Got tons of pictures. Even a short video, but he wouldn't say a word to Santa, it was so "cute"

Stumbling by through 5MFSN. And I'm glad I did!

My nephew gets mad if I call him cute. He says, "I'm not cute, I'm cool!"

I ask my son, "Can you be nice now?" after putting him in time out- so now, when I put him in time out, he'll poke his little head out the door and announce, "Nice!"

What a great idea to give the kids their own party! I'm sure that made Evan really "cute."

Well that was a great performance. Mine charge in the opposite direction as soon as the man in red appears! [although maybe this year it will be different]

Well at least the kids had fun. Lucky this year we don't have a work Christmas party to go to.
