Candlelighters Christmas Party

Today we went to the annual Candlelighters Christmas party at the Embassy Suites in Beaverton. Candlelighters is an organization that helps kids with cancer, and they’ve helped us in the past when Tanisha went through her Leukemia treatments. And every year they throw a fun Christmas party, complete with the reptile man, jumping gym, music and dancing, Satan Clause- I mean, Santa Claus, and lots of food and fun. (This year the food was a bit on the lacking side, but the kid’s still had fun.)

The first stop was the reptile man. He had snakes, lizards, turtles, and an alligator.
