Wednesday night was our Youth Christmas Party!
From what we have heard about the past Christmas Parties…this one was a bit different. We hoped that different would still be good. And I think it was.
Nik put together (which he has done for many years now) a Video Scavenger Hunt!
And then, of course, everyone gathers at our house to watch the videos and eat goodies.
For the past few years, I have taken pictures and shared what I served. Let me tell you…I think that is more for me than you! Ha Ha. Every year, when it comes time for this party, I look back and see what I have done in years past. After a few years of making goodies, I learned what would go over well with our teen group and what did not.
This year was all fresh people. I had no idea. So this is what I made: Peppermint Cookies, Peanut Clusters, Red Velvet Cookies, Reindeer Pretzels, Christmas Trash and Christmas Ritz Crackers. I also made Christmas Punch, Wassail, and served German Chocolate Cake Coffee.
And here are some pictures in case you are interested!
The Before: everything I bought at the store to make the goods!
And the drink stations:
A few other pictures I took:
This is where I would insert a picture of our great group…
But I did not take one!
Remember, bum knee. Plus there were a lot of people in our house and it took a long time to watch all the videos - therefore the party ended late. Bummer. I know.
I’ll just say - It was a really fun night! We are happy to be here, working with this group of teens and getting to know their families. Great people!
