Today was the 8th annual Niece and Nephew Christmas Party. We offer this in lieu of gifts (the party is the gift). Hmmm ... conspicuously absent from the party this year ... nephews! (Ethan had a birthday party to attend and Joe is all grown up--so this year just the girls). In attendance: (left to right) Carissa, Kylie, and Emily.
We started the party by making Shrinky Dinks (ahh-remember Shrinky Dinks), cute little girly charm Shrinky Dinks--they were a hit.
Next, we decorated a gingerbread house cookie. As you can see, everyone got in on the act (even Uncle Greg).
And back by popular demand, the surprise activity. This year, Uncle Greg set up a movie theater in the basement, and we watched the movie Tangled. Greg stood at the bottom of the steps and collected the tickets. There were concessions to purchase (candy, pop, and popcorn).
Greg borrowed a projector from work and projected the movie onto a large wall in the basement. A good time was had by all.
Merry Christmas little ones! We love you all.
