Every year the Christmas Party feels just a little different from the previous year’s party. This year we had a much more international group in attendance. There were guests from Canada, India, Ghana, and (of course) the Czech Republic. Annette prepared some of our favorite Christmas goodies, including her famous chocolate rum cake. Renata came early to help us get ready. She arranged the veggie tray, which explains why it looks like a work of art.
Annette decorated the flat beautifully while the maid (that would be me) cleaned up. She created a “flat-Stanley” Christmas tree which fits inside on of our window frames. It’s really lovely.
We had three different groups of guests this year. The first group arrived shortly after two in the afternoon. There were about six guests in that group. The second group of about twenty five arrived between 4:30 and 5:00. The final group of three came at 9:30, after everyone else had departed!
We had some really interesting conversations during the evening, which is what we prayed for. Thank you for praying, too!
