Living in the midwest with young children has really been a treat. There are so many things for families to do. This week we went to the Huntley Library Holiday Open House. The library shuts down regular business to put on a big party for the children. They had a clown, snacks, arts & crafts, music and of course visits with Santa! All of this was free. To top the evening off, we were all (adults included) given a book to take home and keep.
The best part of the evening was that Tia got the courage to sit next to Santa! She's pretty scared of the big guy, but that night she was willing to sit next to him for a picture.
The library is one of our favorite places in town, so it was a special treat to go there at night. A great time was had by all.
