Holiday Festivities | Leading up to Christmas (Part three)

December 18th, 2011
Santa's Sack
You all may remember last year, we started a tradition in the Dever household of participating in the Santa's Sack program for the NC Children's Hospital.  We decided, along with the Herman Family, that it was more important to give to those in need, than to exchange presents between our families.  So, Sunday morning (12/18), we headed to Target to pick out the gifts for the children at the hospital.  Emerson gets so excited about picking out the presents and this year we told her she could help deliver them.  She did a great job picking out a few presents for both male and female and for different age ranges.  I'm glad she gets so excited about doing nice things for others, and I can only hope this will be a tradition we carry-on for a very long time!!
She took a minute out of shopping to show us the Lalaloopsy Doll she wanted for Christmas.  

3rd Annual Jingle Jolly Party
The evening of Sunday, December 18th we headed to the 3rd Annual Jingle Jolly party hosted by the Bryant family.  Haegan is a good friend of all the girls, but this is the first year she has gone to a new school so the girls were so excited to spend some time together.  As always, Kerry (Haegan's mom) out did herself with yummy treats and a special visit from Santa Claus.  Although it was quite chilly, we still had a great time with good friends, caroling, visiting with Santa, and getting in the holiday spirit.
Quite a threesome, these girls!!
Santa made an early appearance and let every child sit on his lap.  Santa is such a patient man!!
Emerson's visit with Santa!!
Haegan was really thinking about what she wanted!
