Good evening, Emerge! Tonight was our annual Christmas party! We started off hanging out and chatting while the food was brought in by Anna (and a few of her helpers!) After that, we enjoyed the AWESOME dinner that she had prepared!

Once we ate, we chatted a bit longer, then did a Mad Lib. Our next task was to create a snowflake behind our back using only a sheet of paper. Some of them were more successful than others, as Anna could attest. (She was overly critical of my square snowflake with no holes.) After that, we did our gift exchange. It was interesting to watch as everyone opened their various gifts.

By the time we finished that, the night was almost over. Taylor read the poem, “Santa’s Prayer,” then we closed with the song “We Wish You a Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!
