Kommin Krismis …. photographic proof …

We do a end-of-year get together with our friends for Xmas every year, it’s impossible to do an actual Xmas Day with our friends – so we aim for as close as possible.

The last few years we have given it a theme.  This year Joyce came up with “Kommin Krismis” … there were few instructions other than to “dress Kommin..” and we had to give “kommin gifts that had to be used for at least three months after Xmas and not just thrown away…”

We live in Parow, so it made sense to do it at our house … sad but true.

Kommin Krismis does leave TOO much to the imagination, and most of it bad.

I boned up by listening to “Die Antwoord” for about two months beforehand. I must confess the music video was more fashion inspiration than anything else.  I do love them.  Kennith bought a Boney M CD, we put out paper plates.  Sorted.

We decided that everyone gets to bring a cooler box and we do a braai (with the emphasis on the rrrr in braai) – Kennith and I bought a garden gnome for our Secret Santas.

I bought my full outfit at Pick ‘n Pay Clothing – bless them for a great selection on short notice.

I managed to find a racer-back sequins shirt for Isabelle with hotpants — bear in mind she is 2.  I am not sure why anyone would want a sequins racer-back shirt for a two year old and hotpants – but Pick ‘n Pay stocks it in the event that an opportunity for putting your child in sequins might occur.

Here are some pics from the day – and no I do not know what is going on in half of them …..

      It’s a pleasure, I am firmly of the opinion of outing myself before any one else was … I thought the dignity died when we were posing on the neighbours 1400 bakkie … after that it really does not matter who sees what …..

  6. Thanks for the giggle – brilliant!

      We walked down our road and I asked the neighnour if we could pose on his bakkie .. he was a bit confused, but when we started lying all over his hood, he seemed to not be too worried and continued to move his garden furniture around …..as you do ….it clearly occurs often
