Family Expat Holiday Party


Oh how I love to decorate cookies!!!

Last Saturday afternoon we attended the expat Holiday Party for families put on by Jonny's company. The company also had the brilliant idea to have the employee party the night before in which I didn't see Jonny roll in the door until 5 a.m. I feel like I have a teenager in the house! It was a great party and my friends Angie, Reed, and Sadie did a fabulous job decorating and planning the festivities. Here are a few snapshots from the day!


Angus enjoying his food.


Gemma and Angus with Santa. Can you guess who Santa is?


Here is the family with Santa.


And the girls with Santa. Rumor is that Sadie has a thing for Santa!


Speaking of having a thing for is our future son-in-law, Xavier with his betrothed! We have already worked out with Xavier's parents that the kids will marry when they are in their mid to late 20's. When in China, arrange marriages!


Here is Gemma with her good friend Tea.


Gemma and her classmates, Tea and Sheryl


More classmates, Shu Jane, Sheryl, Tea, and Gemma


There was a fabulous band that played for the last hour of the party. They were a cover bands from the Philippines and I tell you those girls can move! The kids loved it although I am not sure how appropriate the music and dancing was since the second song of the night was Sex Bomb by Tom Jones! Here is a photo of guest singer Sadie with her favorite band in Chengdu.


And Miss Gemma cutting a rug!

Gemma and Tea look like twins. I love the guys with the Bavarian hats and leather suspenders standing behind Gemma, Santa and Angus. It's very multicultural.
