The Last Noel has passed for another year.  I had the brilliant idea of making my filled raisin cookies with apricots instead of raisins:

They turned out very well.  We had almost 100 people show up... the house was humming:

The drinks station was popular.  Toward the end of the evening we ran out of punch ingredients and started passing out the leftover Otter Pops from last summer.  I picked up at least 20 empty ones off the floor in the girls' room last night.

Secundus' room was the site of at least 20 teenagers playing Mafia.

The littles were fairly hyper too.

We're tired today.  We had leftover sloppy Joes for dinner tonight.  There's not quite enough to take to fellowship dinner tomorrow.  But there are plenty of cookies and veggies.

I'm going to go sew for a little bit.  Quarta is watching the 4th Harry Potter movie while Tertia has her bath and the boys are at a birthday party.
