Rich's side of the family is massive. He has twelve siblings and twenty-something nieces and nephews. In order for everyone to celebrate the holiday together, they hold a party before (or sometimes right after) Christmas. The party for this year was held this past weekend. The girls absolutely love family parties because they can play with their cousins.
The girls have been afraid of Santa and I was going to skip the whole Santa thing this year because of it. Santa was actually at the Disney parks when we were there but the lines were enormous. Both Santa and Mrs. Claus were at Epcot and the line was at least an hour wait. Yeah, no. Imagine my surprise when Santa showed up at the party to hand out presents and the girls showed no fear. Finally!
Shhh! This little one may not be afraid of Santa because he's actually her grandfather.
So they also do the whole pinata thing for the little kids. These pictures make me laugh, which is why I'm posting so many of them.
Love Clive and Allie in the background of this one.
It eventually broke open. With some assistance.
