We have had Christmas parties galore the past 4 days! We looove this season! :)
We had a Christmas party on Thursday with our lovely Alpha group!
Here is me with my Chinese sister, Ivy!!
Ivy, May, Sylvia, & Marcus about to DIG into the desserts!!
The girlz...(l-r) Sylvia (Indonesia), Ivy (China), me (Canada), Kimmie (US), May (Papua New Guinea) --such a multi-cultural group!!
Me and Joe before we tore into the gifts! :)
Haha, I had to snap a photo of Superpot (Thailand), Marcus (Sweden), and Justin (US) all eating my Christmas cookies!!
A bunch of his collegues made matching Battle Star Galactica suits. lol
We were entertained by various songs and dances...
...but mostly just enjoyed getting dressed up, going out, visiting with friends, and eating a fancy dinner!
On Saturday night we had a joint Alpha Christmas celebration!
It was potluck, so Joe snapped this photo of me carrying a dish all wrapped up to keep warm. haha
It was at the beautiful Pullman hotel!
I've been having fun blessing people with Christmas goodies!!
Sunday afternoon Joey & I went to the Messiah! One of my many favorite Christmas traditions
We leave in FOUR DAYS for Sanya, Hainan...the best Christmas destination!!! I CAN'T WAIT to enjoy white sands, thatched roof huts, and drinking out of coconuts for Christmas again this year! I've got "I'll be warm for Christmas..." (instead of I'll be home for Christmas) going through my head. haha
Merry Christmas, everyone!!
Nica (& Joe & baby!!)
