But before Mendez was in costume she was helping out with the different activities set up for the 70 children that visited the library Wednesday to celebrate the holidays. Aside from meeting Santa Claus and getting a book and gift from him, children did arts and crafts, sang Christmas songs, read stories and got a snack.

Thankfully our family had another lovely Christmas. Although we all ate a bit too much, we also went walking and biking to balance things out. After lunch on Christmas day we even played a spirited game of tag in the backyard, followed by a game of croquet, which I won. It isn't that I am proficient at croquet; the others just made more bad shots than I did. As in other years our two 18-inch elves were up to mischief the whole time. Although they did their deeds quietly we never knew where we would find them.

Holiday season is party season. We love them and we dread them at the same time. It?s wonderful to share in the Christmas spirit with family, friends and co-workers, get dressed up and eat to our heart?s content. But then there are those boring parties we feel obliged to attend because it?s a commitment ? unless, of course, the invitation comes directly from the White House. When I got the e-mail informing me that I was invited to the White House media Christmas party, I was excited and skeptical at the same time.
