Batman was excited. Last night was his Little Kindy Christmas Party. He was looking forward to seeing his friends, Santa, and a clown. He sat waiting so patiently wearing his elf hat while he waited for his name to be called to receive a book from Santa.
I was going to take along banana muffins to share but found choc date balls in the Paleo Cafe cookbook. They went with the Christmas Party theme and were fun and easy to make. The kids of course had to try one before we went to the party!
