Christmas Party at the Hart's House

Last night we had a very enjoyable party at our house. We had the Lofgren, Olm, and Simon families over. Mrs. Simon and my mother had put together a music party and we children performed Christmas music and some music that wasn't Christmasy but pretty all the same.

After we played our music, we ate food (that seems to coincide with parties for some reason), then we all went outside to play Hide-and-Seek and Freeze Tag in the cold weather. It wasn't too cold, thank goodness! Joel lit a fire for us to warm up at and then he and the boys went to put some entertainment together. About fifteen minutes later, some very pretty fireworks burst into the sky.
After our miniature fireworks show, my pyromaniac brother found some bottlerockets and other odd and ends that just had to be shot off. So we went back to the fire and spent the next half hour lighting off whistling bottlerockets. But lighting them one at a time wasn't fast enough for Joel, so he dumped the whole bucket of fireworks into the fire and everyone ran to safety to watch the mayhem that ensued. After the excitement was over, we soon drifted back up towards the warm house.
The time went faster than any of us realized and soon it was going on eleven o'clock. Little children were starting to get tired and soon we were saying goodbye to all our guests.
Next week we're planning on having the same music party at the Simon's house, so that different relatives who weren't able to come last night will be able to come that night. The Lofgrens won't be able to come, as they will be traveling to see family for the holidays and they will be missed. But we can't keep all our favorite people to ourselves. :)
God bless,
Miriam Rebekah

Yesterday was a lot of fun! We got to stay late, which was nice. It was nice to be with everyone again. I'll miss you all next week, but I am looking forward to visiting relatives, and friends!

The Fireworks did HAVE to be shot off. Couldn't just let them sit there.
Merry Christmas Sis.

I know, Joel. I was just joking.

Miriam,

In response to your comment on my blog... actually, I happen to be quite a hopeless romantic. It's just that love at first sight is rather unrealistic. But in many other ways, I am more romantic than is good for me.

I'm so glad you can enjoy my blog. It's so nice that you and Anna can blog together; I've had fun reading!

Have a blessed Christmas,
Jennifer

I know, Jennifer. "Love" at first sight does seem impossible, but I was talking with my mother, and I believe that you can "know" at first sight in some circumstances.

Hope everyone has a great Christmas!
