Christmas is for ‘merry making’ and that’s just what we did last night. Our friends, Anka, Ezechel and little Apollo hosted a very fun and festive White Elephant Christmas Party, where the kids were asked to come in their Christmas PJ’s and we were to bring a gift each for the kiddos to open and one ‘white elephant’ gift for the adults. We of course complied. 🙂 The kids were dressed very comfortable and ready to party into the night…
The night unfolded naturally and lots of fun was had. Good food, and lot’s of dessert options were prepared ahead of time and I just want to say thank you to all who contributed to my gaining a pound or two ;). As is obvious from the photos, the kids couldn’t wait to get to their gifts and then the adults followed suit. The great steal of the night was the Norwex towels and the USB memory stick/CD gifts. The funniest gift was the empty bottle of a Dom Perignon with accompanying wine glasses. I think for the kids it varied but I can say that Seth’s Rockets with Launcher was a big hit amongst the boys. They were so good about taking turns with launching off rockets and Anka and Ezechel were great sports about it too. I would say among the ladies the biggest hit was little baby Matthew. Cristina and Narcis you sure make beautiful babies, congratulations on the new addition, may God bless the four of you.
I was so happy that before leaving I got most of the families to stop and pose for a photo in front of the Christmas tree. I love capturing memories for people and for myself as well, there’s nothing like having photographs to look back on. Sometimes it feels like a hassle but every single time I went ahead and photographed an event I attended I always was glad of it.
Merry Christmas to all,
