Christmas Shoe Balloons

It was time for our 12th Annual Southern Hills Childrens' Christmas Party
This is something the kiddo's have looked forward to for as long as I can remember.
A yummy dinner by fireside
accompanied by a beloved *Shirley Temple to drink 
(a rare treat for my Ruley kids!)
 Owen at his finest
Ella, prim & proper
My beautiful girls
who I adore
Time for the Balloon Guy!
(always the highlight at this party - even over Santa, petting zoo, craft room, photo booth, candy buffet, cupcake decorating, etc.)
Preston & Will - proud owners of the evening's 1st Shoe Balloons
Boys retreat to craft room

 little man figured out that he might just get away with eating two cupcakes & a bowl full of candy!
Girls decide they don't want to be left out of the Shoe Balloon experience...
Abby's didn't quite dig her glittery Mary Jane - it ended up looking like shrink wrap!
Ella's held up though :-)
Annual Zach & Will cousin pic 
(they used to be almost the same size...see what happens once one hits his growth spurt?!)
 Ella & Matt cousin pic - I think these two look like bro & sis!
The youngest of the two Ruley families enjoy some horseplay - 
Matt's arm cast doesn't slow him down

The girls go in for one last request...
The Triple Heart Hat Balloon!

Thanks to Grandad & Nana for a funtabulous evening!!
