HO HO HO...Merry Christmas DS Playgroup

Saturday we had our monthly Down syndrome playgroup and this month we had a Christmas party with the big guy himself, SANTA! Krisitn, the head of our playgroup, did an excellent job with planning the party and it turned out to be one of the best get together's we've had. We met at West Vigo Elementary school and had lunch, then the kids got to play in the gym while there were stations set up around the gym for the kids to do Christmas activities. Some of the activities were: decorating cookies, making plates for Santa's cookies on Christmas Eve, decorating a Christmas tree ornament and making frames for our Santa photos. We had a really nice turn out and met some new families from around the area. Thanks to our funding from Down Syndrome Indiana, which is supported by donations, like the ones some of you made to our Buddy Walk team! we were able to buy Christmas gifts for all the kids in attendance for Santa to hand out. I LOVE our playgroup and am so grateful to have come in contact with some amazing families!

I think she just kept wondering, "Who the heck is this guy???"
