Of course the same day that Eli had his school Christmas party (holiday party, or whatever they call them in public schools these days), we had an important meeting at work. I am unsure if I broke any speed limits as Deanna and I rushed to make it to the party (I'm sure I did not. Nope. Not one mph over the limit...) When we arrived, we were greeted by maximum security at the entrance, which was nice. The party was in full swing, and they had just finished the ice cream (bummer). Santa made a brief appearance. Then the kids played a musical chairs type game with wrapped gifts. The girls worked seamlessly, while the boys were a disaster. Still, it worked out just fine. I remember the parties back when I was a little guy, and they were not quite so cool.
