Well, I went to my first Xmas party of the season last night. It was a family thing, but it was a lot of fun.
There were about 30 of us, for dinner and presents and some drinks and games. Not too bad.
We bought my step-brother (who's 18 months old) a Chicken Dance Elmo, and he loved it. He figured out right away where the button was, and was pressing it all night. He'd give Elmo little kisses on his face while he was dancing. It was so cute!
My dad & stepmom got us a few gifts, one of them being the same thing they get us every year - a sizeable gift certificate to the Grand Traverse Resort in Traverse City, Michigan. It's a resort town on the north edge of Michigan's lower peninsula. Wine country, and a couple of top-ranked golf courses. We'll probably go in the summer or fall. It's nice, because we usually get a jacuzzi room in the tower, overlooking the bay. Very nice
I'm so sore after playing with small children for 2 days non-stop. Not having kids myself, I stretched muscles I barely ever use. Today's a lounging around day, watching football and getting up off the couch as little as possible.
So, anyone else been to any Xmas parties yet?
