Squadron Christmas Party 2011

Tonight was our annual squadron Christmas party!  We started off with a plate of food for everyone.. including my little moose/reindeer on the end there (he hardly ever takes that hat off, and I love it)
 McKenzie helped me at our ornament/Christmas card table for a while! :)
 We were sharing a table with the Mrs. Claus clown, so the kids were first in line for the flying frog balloon...
 ... fat little gingerbread ballon, and a flying blind mouse balloon!
 And what's a Christmas Party without a little "Lady Gaga" face paint?!
...and a pirate
...and a snowman!
 
 The kids could NOT get enough of the mini ferris wheel. Nick said Tyler had a death grip on the sides, but refused to get out, so they just kept riding and riding until more kids showed up for their turn!

Santa arrives in style to OUR Christmas Parties.... on a CH-46!
 It kicked up so much dirt and got so windy, the kids had to hide their eyes and poor Tyler literally shook with fear, the closer the helicopter got to the 'watching' area! Then Santa and his elves came out the back with all kinds of goodies to share with the kids!

 Of course, McKenzie was 'too old' to sit on Santa's lap... but I'm glad the others were okay with it!
 Trevor asked to climb the rock wall... and so he did! He was so proud of himself!
(He's the one on the far right outside)

 He said going back down was fun... but a little scary!

The popping you hear in the background would be the bubble wrap hopping station! 

As always, it was a great time! The kids loaded up on sugar, ran it off in the bounce house and bounce slide...then crashed when we got home!
