25 Days of Christmas, Day 17: Christmas party!

Today was the 2nd annual Christmas party for our church’s small homeschool group.

Megan looks exhausted, and the party hasn’t even started yet.  But at least her bedroom is clean.  I have a pic of the other girls’ room, but it’s scary.  REALLY scary.  I’m not posting it, because this is a G-rated blog.

Meanwhile, Rachael is downstairs waiting for things to get started.  Real things, not work things like setting up.

A quiet moment in the kitchen


A not-so-quiet moment in the living room



Of course there are no troublemakers in this bunch.  Why would you ask?


more trouble

The biggest thing on the agenda was our first pageant rehearsal.  It was really just a quick run-through and a fit-check on the costumes.

The angels took their place at stage right…

…while Mary got pregnant in the kitchen.  WAIT!  WHAT?  Well, that’s how Mrs. N put it.

We’re going to have the cutest sheep and donkey ever!


After rehearsal, we set the hounds kids loose on the cookies.  You should have seen them attack!  There was also a big bowl of wassail, which was gone in 2.5 seconds.

We flipped our lips for a while, then remembered we were supposed to have an ornament exchange.

A selfie, as the party winds down.  See?  Still sane, no new wrinkles or frown lines.  It was a good day.

  1. It was a great day! I was hoping my slip of the lip was unnoticed, but now I guess everyone knows! LOL! I hope Natalie can laugh too 😉

  2. Looks like a lot of fun:-)

    I’m going to try wassail punch. Eggnog is too rich/heavy for my taste.

Don't just think it: say it!
