Christmas Party 2011!

Well another party has come and gone, but not before it left it’s imprint in my mind. But before the imprint fades and starts looking like laundry I want to document the event here at the ol’ blog. Feel free to humor me and come along for the ride.

Well I’m sure the first question on everybody’s mind is, “What did she wear?”, right?

Since it was close to 80 that day I opted for the outfit that would be the least hot and it was this one. I was warm for most of the night, even with the air on but that’s usually the case because I’m so busy.


We like to play games at our parties. You’re never obligated to play but it’s usually worth the effort in the end. (If you win that is.)

Here I’m sitting down with the gals to ask them questions for the Marriage Game.


While their men waited patiently outside.


Then it was the girls turn to wait while I asked the men some questions.


We then bring them back together to answer said questions and it cracks me up every time. The answers, the facial expressions, the counseling afterwards. But we won’t go there will we? 

Let’s move on to the gift exchange. Always a fun time. Here is everyone opening and exchanging gifts. 

What’s my BFF doing here? Kathy, care to explain?

I actually ended up with this. You can’t see it very well, but he’s holding up a metal hanging sign that says JOY. My favorite word. Little did I know when I took it from my BFF who took it from him that she was going to give it to me anyway. Hey, I just wanted to make sure I got it. What?


What a wonderful wonderful time. We just love to pass the blessings on that we receive from the Lord. But it doesn’t come without a price….

…..this was me when it was all said and done.  Aren’t I just lovely?


Okay, retake. SMILE!


Oh there’s my beautiful daughter!


My beautiful BFF!


And I’m throwing this picture in there to show you that we don’t always take the perfect picture. In fact these are more likely the common occurrence.


I guess I’ll leave you with that. I’m pretty sure you’ll be left with a smile on your face.
Have a super lovely day!
