My Little Santa and Elf

A week ago we went to a holiday open house for a building that is filled with artist's studios. It's called the Hot Shops Art Center. We like it. The kids...not so much.

At typical gallery openings I give my kids something to do. The last one Isaak did this:

Dad thought I was nuts for giving Isaak something like that to do. I made sure the mess stayed on the paper.

Sometimes we bring a portable DVD player to.

With a big open house, and all kinds of studios to see there isn't time to give the boys something to do. We're walking around the whole time.

Mica kept saying, "I'm hungry!" Even though he ate right before we left. Isaak kept bumping into Mica.

I like to go, fast walk through everything, and leave. But...Dad has to stop, see, and talk.

I enjoy seeing things. I offer my students extra credit if they show me a picture of them there. They all have Smart Phones it seems. One girl liked it so much she went there both days.

They have glass blowing, a bronze pour, and other things going on. It's really great. Just not ideal for kids.

They did like this display. What kid wouldn't? How fun!

I always bring stuff for my boys to do when they are in situations where they have to wait. It definitely makes life easier.

You are smart taking things for the kids to do.. So many parents let their kids run around and act wild

That's such a fun display. We try to pack snacks, but forgot today. Allison kept complaining she was thirsty and getting dehydrated. She wasn't. She just wanted to be drama queen.

Must be an interesting place for us..but yeah, kids need to have something they like before going places and doing things. I always manage to get at least their favorite munchies :)
