This year, we put in a special request to Santa to come early, since we would be in Bali on Christmas Day. Luckily, Santa was happy to come early, because it's really the only way he can visit all the kids in the world. He can't REALLY do it all in one night.
On the fourteenth, Maximo had a class party that the moms put together. After school his class had another party to kick off the holidays. It was really nice. I really like his classmates and the other moms.

Then we did our last minute shopping, grabbed sushi and gyoza for Christmas Eve dinner from the grocery store.
Santa came and we had a great morning of opening gifts from everyone.

As you can see, it was a tiring day...
Then on Monday, we left for Bali. More on that in the coming days...
