This weekend has been jam packed with Christmas festivities. Thursday night we enjoyed Max's Christmas Program at school. Then on Friday morning I got to do the Mom thing and help out with Max's class party. The kids had so much fun! We made stain glass ornaments and glittered ornaments. The kids swapped gifts with a fun musical chairs game and then we ate all the goodies they all brought. Friday night, Jay and I attended the Servpro Corporate Party downtown. It was a nice time, but a fabulous time being just the two of us. We enjoyed dinner and then went to the party. Daddy Mike and Sassy B kept our two little ones so we could have a good time with no worries. Thanks guys, you are the best!!
Saturday night we attended our annual Christmas in the Culdesac Party. Wowzers, it was fun and late. We ate lots of good finger foods and enjoyed the company of our neighbors and friends. We partied late into the night with the Newlywed Game. I forgot how hilarious and fun that can be. We are blessed to have such a wonderful group of people to raise our children with here in the culdesac. The picture shows all the kidos.....what a busy section of the neighborhood. Hahaha.
Sunday Jay and I hosted my Big Parsons Family Christmas at our house. It was the first time in many years that everyone could be in attendance. Bull and Nanny Margaret where here, Tony and Linda and all their kids and grandkids, and my Parents with all three of us and our families. It was a very full house, but much needed family time as we have all grown up and apart. We made a new game this year with Parsons Family trivia. Everyone came up with various facts and questions about the family and wrote them on cards. Then we put them in a bowl and Dad and Tony read them and with Bull's help answered them the best they could. It was an interesting time of learning about our history and telling stories that everyone can continue to pass down.
