I covered my kitchen table with white newsprint and placed markers in paper cups. The children as well as the adults enjoyed drawing Christmas pictures and writing messages. The children also gathered in the schoolroom and completed various crafts, played with blocks, legos, and entertained one another on the piano.
The men and women tended to hang out separately. The men in the kitchen and den, and the women in the dining room. Much laughter was heard throughout the house, and we had a super time!
