Christmas in July

Last year we threw our first Christmas in July party. We love Christmas around here so it seemed only right to celebrate that we were 6 months away from the best holiday of the year. This year we invited some good friends to our Christmas party and we had a blast. We pulled out our singing Christmas tree, made attempted sugar cookies, made Christmas crafts, drank hot cocoa, listened to Christmas music, exchanged gifts, had an edible Christmas tree decorating contest and swam!

Here are a few of our highlights!

These are our gifts lined up. Nothing big. Stuff from the dollar section at Target. Totally had fun exchanging these!

This is the island lined up with the goodies needed for the attempted sugar cookies and edible Christmas trees.

Thing 3 trying his hand at photography. I probably have about 50 pictures of him in all sort of positions trying to get a great shot. He is a natural. Just look at his stance šŸ™‚

The dads judging the trees to see who won
tackiest and best decorated.

Because it needed to smell like Christmas, I made the recipe from Pinterest. BEST.SMELL.EVA! If you follow me on Pinterst, the recipe is listed under the Christmas Ideas board.

All in all a great party with great friends!
