Christmas Festivities 2011

***** Is that Santa Claus?? *****

The company had their annual Christmas party out at Camp Kilgrumen the week before Christmas.  It was hot.  Very hot.  We were early, of course.  (My husband is always early).  The party started late.  (The Argentines are always late).  Therefore, we were out in the heat for at least 6 hours.  Way…too…long for my party doing capabilities.

BUT…I survived. AND…the the girls met Papa Noel.   It was so funny - not quite the Santa Claus we were expecting.  After meeting him, AnnMarie was seriously concerned that the REAL Santa Claus wouldn’t visit little girls like her in Argentina.  I assured her that Papa Noel was only one of Santa’s hired helpers for parties such as these.  Carlie was a little on the scared side, so unfortunately, we didn’t get any pictures of her with the said Santa figure.

But one thing I can’t argue with - Argentines definitely know how to do desserts.
