Our Ugly Christmas Sweater Party

Last Saturday we hosted an Ugly Sweater Christmas Party at our house. Several of our friends came up for the weekend from central Arkansas and we had such a good time.

I made my sweater by embellishing a Goodwill cardigan with felt shapes and ribbons.

Don’t worry, I made Lois a sweater as well.

Clearly, she loved it.

I was a bad hostess and got too busy to take any pictures with my big camera. Or maybe that means I was being a good hostess?

I made spiked cider. Err, I added a little cider to a lot of whiskey.

We played the usual garage games, beer bong etc.

Good Friends + Funny Sweaters + Good Food + Christmas Tunes  = a great time being had by all

I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time. It was a late night ( I can’t recover from those 4 a.m. bedtimes like I used to), but so worth it. Even if by the end of the night everything started to looked like this…

p.s. Today’s my birthday! Hoping to enjoy 26 for at least one day before the world ends Smile

The 2nd Annual Leonard Halloween Extravaganza

With Halloween falling in the middle of the week this year, we threw our Halloween party on the Friday afterward.  I didn’t get photos of all the guests or decorations because, for once, I focused on enjoying myself instead of playing hostess/photographer.

I spent a ridiculous amount of time hand making a Wonder Woman costume  and Jacob revamped an impressive costume we made a few Halloweens ago.

I made a ton of Halloween themed food and we played beer pong and flip cup into the wee hours of the night. I think it’s safe to say a good time was had by all.
