There were lots of signs of Christmas popping up all over Saturday. The tree was lit up. There were jars of candy and ornaments lined up on the piano for the guessing games. And there were even a lot of reindeer on the loose at our house Saturday evening - all in anticipation of the family Christmas party. There were games and songs and poems and I dare say, more than our share of chocolate and sugar and treats.
|Jodi was resourceful and got on the|
ball and made name cards for
everyone so we all knew where to sit.
|We learned about all the places Snowmen can|
wear their carrot noses and . . .
|. . . Reindeer can sport their red noses.|
|Adam & Nellie's family (plus Layne) shared a poem that|
taught us all about the true meaning of Christmas -
and we also got a bag of M&Ms!
|Mariah, Jodi, Layne and Carter sang Rudolph. I think Tyler|
is standing behind them being Santa but the camera didn't
get him in the picture.
|Tyler recited a poem about a cold lady who swallowed some|
snow and then a bunch of other stuff and finally turned
into a snowman.
|And then, of course, our party wouldn't be complete without|
the Four Scrooges. Should be Five Scrooges but Scott had to
work so he got out of the picture. Amber did, however, take
his hat home to him.
