This weekend we got to hang on to just little more Christmas while celebrating at our LPA chapter’s holiday party! Our chapter, the Mohawk Valley chapter, was re-formed just a few months ago. I had to miss the first couple of events due to being in the hospital with Liam, so I was very excited to meet some of our members for the first time. We had a great time chatting, eating and getting to know each other, while the kids had a blast just chasing each other around! We are so lucky to have such friendly, kind families to connect with in our area. A few families were unable to make it (Weissers, we missed you!) but we know we’ll catch up with them at future events.
The big surprise of the evening was a special visitor from the North Pole – Santa! The kids couldn’t believe that he came all the way back to New York after Christmas just to see them!
Seamus discussed the finer points of Star Wars Legos with Santa…
and Grace had to tell him ALL about the Littlest Pet Shop (poor Santa, he was really getting an earful from her…he had a look on his face that said, “Save me!”)
All the kids got a gift from Santa. Here’s Liam receiving his cute new rattle!
We’re so excited to have a new LPA chapter practically in our backyard! We look forward to many more fun events with this great group of people!
