My cute sister-in-law Charisse invited us to go to Santa's tea party at the Grand America. You have to sign up months in advance and it's all very fancy. It was the perfect thing to get us in the Christmas spirit. My girl here did so good. She got to go to Charisse's salon and get her hair done. Of course the highlight is being able to sit on Santa's lap. Santa and Mrs. Claus read a little story to them and talked to the children about the spirit of Christmas. I think I was more excited than she was. It's always fun to have an excuse to get dressed up. It was fun to take her to a place where she really had to use her very best manners and be exposed to different foods.
