Every year, since before I was born, we have our Christmas party. It's the same every year, for the most part, and I love it! If you have been to one of our parties, then you know exactly what I am talking about in "The List" below. For those who have absolutely no clue what I am talking, just use your imagination :}
It consist of....
*Posola Soup For Dinner(pretty sure that's NOT how it's spelled...)
*Lots of Kids
*The Dancing Doll
*The Dumb Baby
*The Christmas Pig
*Grandkids Performing a Musical Number
And of course...
After which, all the grandkids doing the "cousin" exchange.
I wasn't able to get pictures of everything, but I still did get quite a bit!
We start off by singing Christmas songs, you know, to get into the Christmas Spirit!
Carson is always going after someone's food or drink...
Ok, so below is the "Dumb Baby". She is "Dumb" because she can't talk. She comes from "Denmark" and is bestfriends with Santa. So, all the kids get a chance to ask her YES or NO questions of what they think they will be getting for Christmas. This was probably my favorite part of the night. There is a series of pictures of my nephew Bronson's reaction to all of this. He is such a character and was so into the entire thing. He is 2, so obviously last year he had no clue what was going on...
Levi got to be the "Christmas Pig" this year. (not the greatest job...#1-it gets really hot inside and #2-it's not the most pleasant thing to look at...)The Pig brings treats for all the kids. They all knew it was Levi, so they weren't afraid by any means to tackle him to get the goods! And by goods, I mean the candy :)
Well...I guess not everyone knew it was him...
Bryton, my 16yr old nephew got to be Santa. He had the little ones fooled, but as for his 14yr old sister Mykalin, she knew it was him from a mile away.
