Tonight we went to 'Downtown Lights the Night' a Christmas event held mainly at the Masonic Lodge in Waterloo (the same place where Oliver's benefit was held). We got there late because we had Eden's party that same day, but I still wanted the kids to see Santa and Mrs. Claus and be able to do some fun activities if they got the chance. There were craft areas, food areas as well as a shopping and gift wrapping area where everything was $1.
We saw Linda, a sweet woman that helped out a bunch with Ollie's fundraiser and met another man, I believe his name was Jeff, that has been following Oliver's story and went to high school with a good friend of mine. I was happy to be able to talk with both of them!
The kids with Mrs. Claus. Notice Finny looking up at her with curious eyes!
I love this one of Jaren with the making the peace signs. The hands of the snowman were branches with two twigs, like fingers, so it looked like the snowman was saying... 'peace'!
This was the FIRST time the kids have seen Santa! Jaren was telling him all about what he wanted!
