Thanksmas Party (two thumbs UP!)

Yesterday afternoon and evening we held our first annual 21 OHMS Thanksmas party in our home (rounding up our number from 20 to 21 for the newest OHM member to arrive in February!). We were missing the Hower family who are attending to some business and family matters in the U.S., but we were joined by Emilio and Christy (O’Brien) and Beth’s mom for a total of 17 friends.

We were at Conference over Thanksgiving (and didn’t have a turkey there), so we combined a Christmas party with a Thanksgiving feast (with a real turkey) and enjoyed the food and lots of fun.

The kids made Christmas cookies and all exchanged little gifts, and the adults followed that up by pushing our unwanted white elephants around the room as well. It was a lot of fun. I actually like my little dog that dances and sings “White Christmas,” but I guess I don’t like it quite as much as Dayton who hugged it and petted it and said “I love him.” I am not sure where that little dog went after that!

We decide to not even wrap our newly purchased family Christmas gift, the movie “UP,” and we watched that all together and all somehow fitting in front of our TV. What a sweet movie and I think everyone enjoyed it. If you haven’t seen it, we give it two thumbs UP!
