Sigrid & Edel's Christmas Party - December 4, 2011
Sigrid and Edel hosted a Christmas Party for the girls at our home on December 4th. We had 25 friends and family join in the fun. Nearly half of the ladies attending are part of a close knit group of German immigrants living in the KC area so the party was bilingual at times. In addition to the normal party food and drink, we also had a young girl come in to play Christmas songs on her harp......it was wonderful music and added to the warm holiday atmosphere. Sigrid did a fantastic job in decorating the house for guests.
After much food & wine was consumed and the harpist left, we turned on the stereo for more Christmas music.......the sing-a-long started to gain strength. Only the desire to visit kept the group from walking the neighborhood to Christmas Carol. Everyone had a great time and found it hard to leave. We enjoyed the day so much we hated to see them go. We will have to do it again next year and make time for an official sing-a-long.
