A Very Celebrity Holiday Party

This weekend was a four party weekend but I’m going to run out of steam before I can tell you about them all. For the fourth year in a row I’ve been invited to Santa’s Secret Workshop. It’s a little get together for celebrities and their little kids – and for some reason me. I was really proud of myself for knowing who almost every celebrity is. Here’s a sampling of what went down along with some gift ideas for your own family this holiday season. Everyone who attended brought at …

The First Holiday Party
