We had our ward Christmas party tonight. We were plagued by several mistakes. The first one was that my husband was in such a hurry to get out of the house that he ended up tripping over Evan and dropping the pie I had baked. It was clean but completely broken into pieces. Instead we brought the big plate of gingerbread cookies that I had been baking for something else. My husband grumbled that they were not frosted yet but I did not care at that point.
The next mistake was that we had thought it was a dinner so we had not eaten anything before hand. Evan and Harry got their dream dinner of sweet breads and cookies. I did get some fruit down them first so it was not all a bust.
A surprise of the evening was that Evan got freaked out by Santa. He eagerly ran up to him but once my friend put him on Santa's lap he flipped out. Harry was pretty lukewarm about the fat man and did not stick on his lap for long either. It was pretty fun otherwise. The kids had fun getting all sugared up and we had fun talking with friends.
