Lilly did well again with Santa this year. We headed next door the the model homes where every year they have pictures with Santa. This year they also had free hot chocolate, cotton candy and popcorn. Lilly was a little nervous and didn't want to sit on Santa's lap but we convinced her and she did it. Afterwards, she was soo happy that "she got to see Santa!" and get a candy cane from him and Mrs. Claus.
We decided to let Lilly have a birthday party with friends this year and she loved it. We had it the weekend before Thanksgiving and it was a princess theme.
Lilly with her Pin the Crown on the Princess. The kids could totally see around the little eye mask it came with so they each put their crown sticker on a different princess even though they were supposed to aim for Rapunzel. Oh well. They enjoyed it at least.
We had a dress up table so they could dress up like a princess if they wanted to and pick out a wand.

The princess crown cupcakes that no one really ate (except maybe the frosting). They all ate fruit and cookies and goldfish instead.

Overall, Lilly loved it and it went pretty smoothly for a bunch of 2-4 year olds.
