wagons rides and cocoa for everyone

Last night was our annual church Christmas party...... at Wheeler Farm wow it was a really busy night!!!
It was a little crazy for some of us. meaning I was in the kitchen I was heading up the silent auction and I was doing sound....
all of the little ones were invited to take a wagon ride and have hot cocoa, I got to volunteer at the last minute to go on the ride. YIPEEE!!!! I was so excited I can't tell you. I got to head up my own little group of little ones or not so little ones if you will. Most of them were 7 or older but my littlest buddy got to come along for the ride...... Marshall. He is sooo adorable and he is so teeny and so quiet when he talks. He kept on saying "moon inda sky" "goose, goose" "tractor" but he was so good. He loved his ride and his hot cocoa. The funniest part was when we got to the wagons we had to wait for the second ride so we got our cocoa first. Well I was holding Marshall and I realized he was chewing gum and I said do you have gum in your mouth he said yes and showed me, funny thing is it smelled like a mouthful of chicken, So I realized it was chicken and not gum. I kept asking him if he wanted to swallow it or spit it out and he just kept on chewing that chicken. I think when the hot cocoa came around he finally did away with the chicken he had been working on for the last 15 minutes. This kid is getting ready for winter I think. Like a little chipmunk he was storing it in his little cheeks.
We had a really great time and it was a much needed break from all of the busy-ness of the party.
Thanks Jesse for letting me take Marshall as my partner.

p.s. if you ever go to Wheeler Farm check out the guy in the kilt, he has spun all of the yarn for his sweater that his wife knitted for him. you can find him by the fireside at night spinning wool into yarn, by the way his wife is currently knitting him some kilt hose. This guy Mike I learned his name after I called him "my kilted friend" lives behind the farm and he is really friendly, you will love talking to him.

I was going to ask you on Sunday how he did on the wagon ride. Thanks for taking care of him. When I got to the part about him chewing gum I was freaking out. Why was he chewing gum! Is that what happens when dads in charge? But I take all my negative thoughts back. Although now I'm thinking gum may have been better than chicken. That's really gross; even for my kid. I'm so bummed I missed it all. My work meeting went until 10:45 that night. LAME!!
