Grinch Christmas Party

We had our Christmas Party last night.  We did a Grinch/White Elephant Theme.  We enjoyed dinner together.  Afterwards, the kids made up a play about Jesus and we enjoyed watching them perform:) 

We then exchanged gifts.  If you have never done a Grinch Christmas, it is fun!  First you bring a wrapped gift of something that you want to re-gift.  You draw numbers and the highest number goes first and picks a present from the pile and opens it. The second number can pick a present from the pile or take the first present (the first then can choose a new present).  The third number can pick either of the first two opened presents or pick a new one from the pile.

The kids also exchanged gifts. 

After all of the gift exchanges, we played Rock Band.  This was hilarious!  I think Jim was a Rock star in his former life!  It took quite a few tries for the band to not get booed off the stage but eventually they got a “You Rock” by finishing the song. 


Enjoying dinner with friends.

Jim’s ready for the gift opening!


Esther has the much wanted gift of the evening.  It got taken the most. 


The laughter made my little comedian even goofier


Joe ended with the beautiful photo album:)
