I love love love Christmas parties! This past Saturday I had the privilege of attending two!
The first was a brunch for the tutors & directors in my classical conversations group at one of the swanky country clubs in the area. As nice as it was the best part was really getting to know these ladies better. We're always so rushed on the days we have class that we barely have time to speak.
In the evening Ray & I had a Christmas party & ornament exchange for the Sunday School teachers & their spouses. One of the best parts? No kids! Rays' dad not only agreed to keep all of the kids during the party but also offered to keep them ALL overnight!
Presents for the ornament exchange! (All I kept hearing in my head was Michael from The Office: "Yaaaannnkkkkeeee swap!")
Ray & I couldn't bring ourselves to simply go home when we had zero obligations so instead we went over to Robert & Brianas house for a night of chatting for the girls & "jamming" on the guitar on the back porch for the guys. It was so lovely! We went home a little after 11 & we were completely exhausted. What a fun day!
The following morning we drove up to get all of the kids & then went to church. We were there until 3 in the afternoon because we had Christmas play practice after the meetings. After practice the younger kids were having a blast dancing together on the stage - they were so sweet!
