Santa in July!

This morning, Tami found me swimming in the lake.

“Maxwell, you have one job and one job only, to report on the recreation. You’re two blog posts behind and Super Hero Weekend starts tomorrow. When are you going to write them?”

“I can’t hear you,” I told her, while doing the back stroke. “I have water in my ears.”

“If you don’t get them done today, you’ll be grounded for the weekend. No Super Hero Weekend for you.”

No Super Hero weekend? I jumped out of the lake. “I’ll have them done today,” I told her. “No need for grounding.”

“Pictures and all?” she asked.

“Pictures and all . . . ”

So I did the post for Pirate Weekend.  And that took a lot longer than I remembered!  Since Tami doesn’t read the blog, I’m just gonna dump all my Christmas photos right here for you all to look at so I can go to Moosey Yoga, okay?  This deadline has me stressed!

Edited to add:  Apparently Tami DOES read the blog.  So I had to go back and tell you all what we did all weekend . . . . sheesh! She’s such a mean boss!

All week long my little campers and I waited for Christmas. Not the usual Christmas, but Christmas in July!

We had story time and arts and crafts every day. We made ice cream, told scary stories by the campfire, played kickball and held bubbles.

We even made Santa water sleighs and had a sink the ship contest at the lake!

When the big day finally came, there was so much to do! Arts and Crafts, Reindeer Races, snow balloon games and even a Santa Dress Up game!

These guys fooled me for a bit . . . I thought Santa had come early! But then I realized they may have had the Santa suits, but they were a little short to be the Big Guy.

This guy fooled me too!  He’s tall enough to be Santa, and was on a roof, but he didn’t have the Santa suit.

Everybody decorated! It was so Christmasy!

By 6:30 Saturday night, everyone was so excited!! Especially me! When Santa arrived, I was jumping up and down!

This kid, played it cool though.

Santa handed out treats,

while everyone played Christmas games at the party.

And just to be clear, they all won prizes. This little camper was the only lucky duck to get a cool rock like this one.

There was cookie decorating too . . .

And I think those cookies were a big hit!!

There were sooooo many people!

Santa told Tami there were 90 little campers in all .  . . 90!  Whoa!

I’m not sure how many adults there were, but they liked meeting Santa too.

And did you know, Santa brought a couple of friends with him?  The Grinch . . .

And Frosty!   It was so good to see them.

But I had to keep both eyes on that Grinch . . . he almost stole Christmas again!!!

Tami said she loved our Christmas party, because it was all about putting smiles on the kids faces, like this little guy who’s wearing the Santa hat he made at Arts and Crafts.

At the very end, Santa handed out gifts to all the good little campers. I don’t mind telling you,  I was a little worried.

Okay, A LOT worried!

But I did get a present!  So I must have been good, right??  Just like my friends, here.

And the best part about Christmas in July???

 

We only have to wait six months to have it all again!!!

Merry Christmas everyone!!!
