On the 21st the base had their annual Children's Christmas party. We went to the movie theater on base and started watching The Polar Express but it kept pausing and then quit all together. It was so annoying, but then they came and explained that the machine ate the film! They tracked down a new machine and a new movie so we ended up watching The Santa Clause. The kids really enjoyed it and it's not a film they have seen so it was fun. It's the first time in a LONG time that the kids have been to a "real" movie. The only big problem we had was that both Natalie and Robbie are so small that they got folded up in the cinema seats. After the movie, Santa came to see all of the good little boys and girls! That was the most exciting part for them of course and thankfully this year, Robbie was more keen to say hello and not run away screaming!
Frosty came to visit too! Robbie didn't think Frosty was very nice and stayed very far away!
