Sunday we had a little Christmas party with adults and kids. This was a first b/c usually I do not do a mixed party(kids and adults). However, with my kids getting older and the "nature" of this group....we did! It was great fun. Everyone brought their favorite Christmas dessert.
We did a white elephant exchange...I still don't think my 4 yr. old understands this "whole" concept. Even during the exchange...I kept thinking "oh please no one steal her gift...it will be a meltdown!"
Also, we did the "reindeer antler game". Everyone gets an antler when they come in. The host throughout the night will take it off. When you see the host take it off..you quickly take it off..last person with the antler on their head is out. There is a gift at the end of the night to the person still wearing the "antlers". It's crazy but the kids love, love it!
Well, Sunday was crazy with church, basketball game, Nutcracker and then hosting a Christmas get-together. The Nutcracker was very sweet. I even got teary eyed at one part..OH MY! I know I am just exhausted when I cry at the Nutcracker. Do you know how many times I have seen this? I COULD BE THE NUTCRACKER..Just hand me my sword, please!
I did not take one picture during the party. By the time, I sat down for the exchange...I did not have one ounce of energy to go back upstairs to get my camera. Well, off to eat an energy bar and wrap some more gifts!
p.s. I saw the snowman cupcakes on Family Fun. However, recently I saw them on the most wonderful "blog". It's like looking at a magazine...a true delight! Check this talented lady out...her cooking is so beautiful and her pictures are like a storybook!
