Our new friend Jamie from Manchester

We had our annual Solscice party this past Saturday (not on the solstice this year, so I suppose it was really just a Holiday Soirée). Unfortunately, we didn't take many pictures, but Ludek snapped this one of me and Jamie Draven (he was Billy Elliot's big brother in the film... BILLY ELLIOT and is in the upcoming film BADLAND which my talented husband scored). Isn't he a cutie pie? An AMAZING actor, and just a really nice guy.

Each year we ask guests to share a song, story, poem, an interpretive dance to ring in the season. Ludek started the evening with Randy Newman's "Great Nations of Europe" which was a big hit. Then several of our other brave and talented friends joined in, including our friend Jonathan and his cheery rendition of "Killing Pidgeons in the Park." David P. did his annual ode to Texas (since our living room is filled with Texas kitsch, and Jenn and I joined in. Quite embarassing that the two Texans in the room (Jen and me) only knew the refrain "deep in the heart of Texas". I'll have to learn the lyrics before next year. I was so ashamed. Of course the kids were adorable and sang several Christmas songs, and our dear little one did her Hanukah song she learned in school for the one Jewish friend there. Thanks to everyone who participated. It was a fun evening!
