It is time for another Emerald Christmas celebration! Kevin & Jane were hosting their annual open house this afternoon/evening and it was wonderful to celebrate with our neighbors. However, this was also the last time for me to hang out with our good friends Matt & Emma, so was a little bittersweet. They are off to their next Ex-Pat adventure in Bangkok, Thailand. Isabelle and Oliver will really miss their best buddies:
It was a wonderful afternoon/evening with excellent hosts – Kevin and Jane. Everybody bought something to share (Isabelle had made cupcakes earlier in the day for us to take – and they were delicious!). There was also plenty of fizz for the adults to enjoy! The kids were in their element with loads of arts and crafts to do, plus movie time. It was time for me to catch up with old friends before the mass departure for the Christmas break.
I will also miss Matt & Emma…..
What a wonderful time, catching up with old friends and new friends. Many are about to leave for an extended Christmas break so this was perfect timing to wish everyone the best of the season.
The kids thought that it was a fun time too!
Merry Christmas to all my Shanghai friends!
