On the right here you"ll see a picture of Devan singing his heart out to "Let it go' from the Disney film "Frozen"
His singing was quite the hit with everyone at the party. Once he was done with his song everyone gave him a big round of applause and he was one happy camper!
Today was a very fun and exciting day for Turn City Center for the Arts. Today we went to a Christmas party and got to have ourselves a grand time! There was dancing, Sloppy Joes, awesome Christmas music, a visit from Santa, and one of our very own got to sing "Let it go" from the movie "Frozen"
Christmas cheer and holiday spirit were certainly in the air at this Christmas shindig. Everyone was singing along with their favorite Christmas songs and talking about their up coming plans for the holidays.
The dance floor was booming with everyone dancing and bringing their best moves out to songs that ranged from "Santa Claus is Coming to Town", "Jingle Bell Rock," and even "Footloose!"
It was a great time, but the best part was without a doubt when Old Saint Nick himself popped in for a visit! The room filled with cheers of delight and joy once Santa entered the room. He did a quick lap around the room greeting everyone till he settled down in a big chair in the corner. Everyone rushed and made a big line all waiting their turn to take a picture with Mr. Claus and receive a gift from him.
The party was tons of fun and when the music was done and everyone had their gifts and full stomachs we all went home with smiles on our faces. Hopefully next year and the years that follow will be as good a time as this year!
