Christmas Party

We had a Christmas party with some of our new friends. 
The highlight of the evening was the white elephant gift exchange. Andy got a Trivial Pursuit game and was happy as a clam except for the fact that he had no idea what it was. 
Then Jonah got a porcelain doll. I think his face says it all.
He promptly gave it to this little girl.

On his next turn Jonah got a bag of garlic and onions with some herbal supplements. Andy especially got a kick out of that.
Finally, it was Ben's turn. He got a book which thrilled his soul...
 even though it was written for mine.
Alas, Jonah got a pocket knife--a pocket knife! We'd already told him he couldn't have one but we decided to let him keep it until we got home.
That was a mistake. This is the last picture I took of Ben with his eccentric loot before he ran into that knife and lifted his knuckle off the bone.
He's fine now and the finger is healing nicely. I think that was the first time the boys ever played that game and they loved it. Next time, however, we'll probably make sure we play the kids-only version without sharp objects.
