Our Christmas party this past weekend went very well. The weather refused to cooperate (cold, rainy, etc.) which caused us to alter our plans, but we managed rather well. We had planned a large campfire with smores and reindeer games for the kids, but had to snuggle up the kids in the living room with movies, homemade cocoa and snacks. They were not upset with the change. :)
We planned our get together for mid afternoon so that everyone could do Christmas shopping, basketball, or other activities in the morning and still get to their other Christmas parties that night. We billed it as a "stress free" stop along the way. Everyone of all ages had a great time.
We did a few "reindeer games", which included in the carrot nose on the snowman and Christmas tree ring toss and a dance party for the kids. Lots of friendship and laughter. It's stressful getting everything together, but always fun when everyone gets here.
I have tons of candles and ornaments flying out the door, so I must go paint again. :)
Hope everyone is gearing up for Christmas!
