Sunday

'tis the season to be jolly

we had fifty people here last night for our ugly sweater christmas party. it's a little hard for me to believe that we know that many people here, let alone that they could fit into our house! tragically (ok, unfotunately), our camara is MIA, so no pictures, but a friend got some that hopefully we can post later.

some people went all out--sequins, jingle bells, teddy bears, bedazzled christmas trees. jim's sweater had a st. bernard in a 3-D scarf, and mine had bright sequins flowers and shoulder pads. it was awesome. dressing up (down?) set people at ease and gave them something to talk about, which was great, since the crowd was diverse in age.

because we aren't such big fans of disposables, we have an entire house full of wine glasses and dishes that need to be washed, but that will be a task for another hour. after this, i'm going to read the paper love every restful minute.

merry christmas!

That's great--my brother went to one of those sweater parties last year--sounds like fun!

Awesome. Sounds like you all had a fun time. A bunch of dirty dishes is definitely worth the joy and hospitality you have shown to the people in your community. I love it! Great job and I can't wait to see pics of those sweaters.

What a great idea! I must copy this next year.

What a great idea for a party theme. I bet there were some doozies! and I bet the stories behind them were even better! Unfortunately I have gifted to the clothing closet my "best" sweaters. I would have had to make a Wal-Mart run to come to your party! :):) Too bad you don't have pics to use for future bribery!
