St. Nicholas Party

Okay, so our party took place neither on St. Nicholas Eve nor St. Nicholas Day, but close enough.
Every year the adults of the family exchange a gift basket filled with all those Christmasy things we don't buy for ourselves.
I believe it is all of our favorite traditions.
This year all the grand kids got a "movie" themed gift basket with a ticket to see a movie over the holidays.
If Jonge seems a bit less than excited in the pictures, he was coming down with a headache and fever.
You know, it isn't a holiday of someone isn't sick.
The rest of us were fine and enjoyed the festivities immensely.
Oldest Son and Daughter-in-law.
Oldest Son is still recovering from a horrific ear infection that sent him to the ER one night last week. 
Youngest Son and Hertsje
Son-in-law, father of many
Broeder, who hasn't yet noticed the movie ticket so isn't impressed - yet.
Daughter, enjoying the party!
Do notice the lack of snow.
Everyone was present.
A few have learned that if you don't want to be in Beppe's pictures, sit by her.
It is tradition to give gift baskets, EAT A LOT, and decorate cookies!

This is the moment we all hope that no one else is about to develop a fever.
Fun times.
And a great dessert!
We had a dessert, but after frosting cookies and eating them, no one wanted any!
A good time was had by all, although you can't always tell from the pictures, so you will have to take my word for it!
