Christmas Eve Celebration

Christmas Eve 2010 from outypants on Vimeo.

We were able to celebrate Christmas with our friends. In attendance: The hosts The Harveys, their friend Natalie, and the Wang family.

lots of food!

I was able to find Christmas Crackers in the store and was excited to try them out. As an American they were never part of any tradition in our house.
Renee told me about the tradition of having them on Christmas day in Australia. I have seen and heard of them referred to in British stories or television .

Traditional cracker prizes: Hats, a joke and a toy.

Crafts: gingerbread cookie decoration, wreath making, and Christmas cards.

Elliot hasn't quite learned about the spirit of giving..
The kids listening to the Christmas story read by Craig.

The kids had a gift exchange and received wonderful gifts.

Having a bit of fun. Albert was the brave dad who tried it on.

A lovely time with our Hong Kong family !
