And what was inside – her very own puppy, ha ha! This one’s great – no piles of poo and pools of wee anywhere in sight. Immediately house trained.
Thank you to my brother and sister for buying Amy a new “interactive with iPod Furby”.
Very cute as you feed it and talk to it and rub it’s tummy and it giggles type thing.
Oh yeah did I mention he talks, and talks, and talks, and talks, and talks!!!!!!
So again thank you to my brother and sister for getting this for her – ahahahahahahahahahaah!
Ollie checking out his new Camera/Camcorder – awesome little thing. Waterproof, ruggedised, sporty thing. Very cool and now Ollie is a budding photographer and short film creator.
OH God it’s that bloody Furby again, and it’s awake – ahahahahahahahahahahaha!
My girls preparing for the singing and dancing competition – we had markers for scoring as Amy is holding.
5 or 10 points per act could be awarded.
Some shots of the girls.
Now the funny thing. See the drink that Glenda is holding. That is the Welcome Drink. Made of guava/pineapple/apple juices, ginger beer, mango, star fruit, cinnamon, papaya, lime. Oh yeah and 4 bottles of sparkling wine, half a bottle of vodka and some white rum. Little did the girls know, as it really did taste just lovely and fruity.
So look at the girls all placid and sober. We’ll get to some other photos shortly – ha ha! How things change because of a few Welcome Drinks!
A couple of lovely group shots – starting to fill up now. Food going down well. Much needed too as there was a tonne of it.
OK here we go. Singing and dancing contest. Nereh up first for that. I was musical co-ordinator. Name drawn from a hat, then that individual pulls a 50/50 chance of dancing or singing.
I think some of the Welcome Drink is starting to have an effect? What do you think?
Next up the kids – yep, Gangnam Style.
They were EXCELLENT and in fact came joint first on a perfect score of 160.
Here goes Ging Ging, perhaps with too much underarm deodorant on? Seems to have made her arms unable to put down. Or could it be that Welcome Drink again?
Yep more Gangnam Style. And the kids had not been drinking, I promise!
Then we kicked off the quiz.
Ollie and I were hosts for this full multi-media, interactive quiz. Singing, dancing and multiple-choice were on the cards. Here is jingle bells karaoke section – what on earth is Nereh doing? Ha Ha! Jingle Bells dance?? Could be Welcome Drink related?
Team 2 in action. Team 2 also the final winners. The final winners of the prize of a brand new iPAD to share between them. More of the iPAD later. Well done team 2.
Next up Santa Santa. Blindfold someone, stick them in the middle, hand them a little santa claus toy. Surround with a circle of friends. One person comes in and takes the toy. All then stand hands behind back as the person in the middle tries to guess who took the santa. Get it!
Now to pass the parcel – 20 presents or 20 layers to get through. We had pre-planned to make sure all got a gift. SO me in charge of music had to ensure the music stopped on 20 individual people without making it look “staged”. Ha Ha!
Remember that amazing first prize of an iPAD for the Christmas Quiz.
Well here I am showing that off – yep it was a brand new iPAD.
Ollie now takes over above and below.
A game of batman, superman, wonder woman for a selected audience. Amy did very well at this. Great work Ollie.
See Ging Ging has that arm problem again!!!
Oh my goodness its catching – they’re all at it now, even Amy.
A lovely photo of the girls, starting to wind down now as some of the had curfews to manage. Such a shame that even on Christmas Day they have to do this. Nightmare employers if they can’t even allow one day of absolute freedom. Bah Humbug!
Nearing then end of a great day now.
Goodbyes to some already done. Last few standing now. Shame the day came to an end. What a wonderful party we had with our very good friends. Thanks to you all for coming and having fun with us, you made it a very fun and very special day.
OK OK not quite over. That last little bit of energy induced by Welcome Drink, enables one last dance and one last dance that happens to be Gangnam Style taught by the dazzling duo of Ollie and Amy.
I LOVE this snap below as I caught them all mid air. Superb!
But see again, it’s Ging Ging and her arm problem. Ha Ha! Change your deodorant sweetie!
Then back home for clear up, wash up, bed for kids, and relax for us.
Maricel, renowned for sleeping at our place, hits a home run this time. No sleeping across two dining room chairs, no not this time – she made it to the sofa. Phew! She looks much happier there.
Was there a cause for the sudden sleepiness?
See the orange beaker?
Sorry see the empty orange beaker?
Guess what was in that before it became empty?
Yep you guessed it, Welcome Drink! No wonder she’s sleeping – he he.
And the final photo of a wonderful day.
Maricel and JB off home. But what’s that they’re sporting?
Looks like some sort of drinks holders each. Yep, we gave them some takeaway Welcome Drink.
So Welcome Drink then became a Goodbye Drink – he ha.
Thanks again girls – what a great day! Happy Christmas and see you all at New Year hopefully.
