Ho Ho Ho! Merry Christmas Folks. Time for pictures from our Christmas Holidays! Before we left for the homeland, we went to Christmas party in NC before we left that was also attend by Mr. Claus. Both kiddos were not interested in sitting on Santa's lap, but they were very excited to see him. Noli asked where Santa was going when he left and I said he probably had other parties to go to. Noli was thrilled and said "is that what Santa gets to do? Go to party after party?!"
