On Sunday, Dec. 15, the Star Riders and their parents gathered at the Mitchell residence for their annual Christmas party. Before opening presents, Vixen handed out the rewards for the outstanding members in the group, including the parents who all received the award for being great supporters of the group.
After chow time, the group started the white elephant, a game where everyone brings a gift and draws a number, picking a present in order of their number. The only trick to this game is that when your turn comes around, you can either open a present of your choice or steal a present from any innocent bystander. Of course the group is blessed with Jacinda, Rayanna, and Dianne, who teamed up against everyone else hoping for the gift they so desired; but, there was always someone that would break their poor little hearts.
After the competition raged for hours, pictures were taken, and the group listened to music while continuing to snack before going home.
