Christmas Eve Eve

23 December 2008 | Swingin' on a Star
We had a movie night for the kids on Swingin' on a Star tonight.

It was a funny role reversal day. Hideko spent all day transferring diesel to the boat in jerry jugs while I spent the day baking Sugar Cookies. Sorry to say, but I like cooking a whole lot better than attending to engines.

We decorated the boat as much as we could with our little string of lights and our micro Christmas tree. We had some lovely cards from Nina and Lucas on Kliener Bar that dressed things up a bit and Kelly on Nueva Vida made us a really cool wreath from green sea glass (now that's great recycling!). The kids from both boats took a vote on the film to show and Polar Express won. That was the same movie our nieces and nephews selected two Christmases ago when we had everyone aboard in Nassau. I have a soft spot for "It's a Wonderful Life" but animation always seems to take top billing with the kids.

The other boats brought yummy candied nuts, popcorn and pretzels so we had lots of munchies for the film. It was a fun night with holiday music and mixing and did a good job of getting everyone into the Christmas spirit.
