This year I was able to host our annual Baker Christmas party. Every year we have a progressive dinner with the family, but this year we decided to add more family, Have more games and just have all of it at my house instead of venturing out into the cold. It was a little chaotic getting ready for this event, but it was all well worth it.

Our meal consisted of a variety of appetizers such as stuffed mushrooms, mozzarella sticks, quiche, jalapenos poppers and spinach pockets. We followed with a delicious salad and Lasagna for the entree. My sister made a couple of desserts like chocolate dipped pretzels and apple cobbler with ice cream. My aunt also made a very good Mexican jello to add to all the deserts.

After dinner we played the white elephant gift exchange game. We had many funny gifts like Kenzies love written down for you on a piece of paper, A purse with mugs, a lump of coal and a spoon. (Kade got most of those and he wasn't too excited about it...he's 4) We also had some good gifts like a homemade nativity set (Super cute), Stephens hot chocolate, games, and play dough.

Finally the big hit of the night was karaoke! We had a boys verses girls game going...the girls won most of the time. I had never done karaoke before and it was actually pretty fun.

Luke even got in on the action...Strange hu?
Here are the older relatives having a go at karaoke in Spanish.

The party turned out to be a bigger success then I though it would be. Thanks everyone for making this party so much fun!
