And so we gather to celebrate Christmas.
The tree, in all its splendor.
The meat pie, in all its splendor.
After breakfast and presents, we had a Fun Christmas Activity. This consisted of a variety of activities one could partake in. Here are some pictures of what we did.
Linda made a New Year’s scene from a purposefully limited supply of colored paper.
Matt attempts the blind Christmas tree tear.(After first cheating and folding a Christmas tree.)
His two results.
Linda’s blind Christmas tree.
Chris works away at the Christmas packet, consisting of trivia questions, a crossword, a word search, and a cryptogram. Aunt Pat cleaned the kitchen. (Cleaning up was a category, as was taking a nap.)
Mom made a New Year’s scene.
I attempted a Blind Christmas Tree tear, and was better at the Christmas tree then taking a picture of it.
Aunt Pat’s cat Roo takes a break.
Aunt Carol’s New Year’s scene.
One of our activities was reading a poem aloud. Inside one volume of the Book of Verse, I found my grandmother’s transcription of “Thanksgiving Day.” This was a great find. I so rarely come across her handwriting.
And here are the final standings of all who participated.
