merry multiplication

Today I hosted the 2nd annual Austin Stone Community Church neighborhood Christmas party.  Last year, we had 7 kids (4 families) in our neighborhood that went to the Stone.  It was so manageable that we could take a picture like this:

This year, however, we had 21 kids(from 9 families)!!! And yes, we all live within 5 minutes walking distance from each other and we all go to The Austin Stone. Crazy, I know. I guess we could be considered a commune of sorts. Anyway, we had a great party! We had lunch, crafts, decorated cookies, heard the Christmas story, and had a book exchange. Sadly, we could not get all 21 kids into one shot this year so this is the best I got of the Christmas party chaos.

Amidst all of this fun(remember 21 children) there was, however, one casualty at my house. (Warning! This picture is graphic.)
