My boy and one of his best buddies! Friends since Tigers!
So how do you throw a Christmas party for 14 boys plus assorted parents and siblings? With a lot of energy and activities. We had ornaments to color, activity sheets to help keep them busy, some planned games, and plenty of food. After all, we have 9 year old boys in our troop, so we definitely have to have plenty of food.
We played Christmas trivia while eating, then the boys had a White Elephant gift exchange, which was lots of fun for them. Ben was really excited to get a new TMNT character he didn't have (amazingly, it was one that I have been looking for for ages for him!).
We also enjoyed peppermint cocoa in our special new mugs and each of the boys took home a star shaped cookie cutter, hopefully to make cookies with their families. Ben and I definitely will! And, as one can imagine, the Santa mustache straws and hats were a huge hit with the boys. I think most 9 year old boys are into the whole mustache thing.
Now as to Jingle All the Way 2? We loved it! It's a great sequel to the original and a fun family holiday movie, not to mention relatable. What parent hasn't had that "must track down toy"?
