Our Christmas party was fabulous & a mixture of... super fun people, such as Fatima & Sierra (exchange students from Oregon) & Inma (from Sevilla). As well as Annie (above) from our English Club. And these amazing men, Fran, Jose Maria, Carlos M., Carlos H., Isaac, Jake and Abraham.
We had great food! (people kept saying that). Jose and Andrea had about 3 tries at spelling "Christmas"! (but great job, guys!)
Awesome decorations and candlelight atmosphere! And even a talking parrot, which Jose Maria got for a game.
Festive carols (sung in 2 languages). The Spanish ones are called "Villancicos."
Everyone enjoyed the funny games! (including a "white elephant" gift exchange-- lots of laughs!). Rosa is un-wrapping a Santa Claus! Megan was a busy bee in the kitchen in the afternoon.
Most of us didn't wanna see the party end! ha! The day had begun at 10:45 a.m. with Lea coming over to bake German cookies!
And I think the last group left around 4:20 a.m. (the next day!! ... and 1 more was still there, spending the night at my place). THANKS to all who made it truly a team effort! Here I am with Andrea and Megan, our fantastic interns this semester (we will miss you guys!), and Nataly by me from our English Club!
