a very tacky christmas
We have always hosted an "Ugly Christmas Sweater" party for our small group. This was our fourth year. But thanks to a new couple in our group, I'm pretty sure the theme has changed to "A Very Tacky Christmas". Most of us just threw on an old Christmas sweater or sweatshirt, but last year this couple created their own outfits...complete with red spray painted boots. It was awesome. This year they sent out a text saying we better bring our A-game. So we had to step it up a notch.
Here we are...A Very Tacky Christmas 2011. Joel and I brought back the turtlenecks. My outfit was all too familiar...something I probably would have worn back in junior high...maybe not the Christmas motif but definitely the turtleneck and baggy shirt. I had some red and white stripped rudolph the red nose reindeer knee-high socks on too. I even embellished Joel's turtleneck for him. Doesn't he look cute?
And here is the rest of the group. The super creative couple was dressed as a Christmas tree and present. Cute. We have such a fun time together and we are so thankful for each one of these couples. And I am sure they are thankful I am putting their pictures on my blog! :)
This year we went to a Japanese grill for dinner and then met back at our house for dessert and white elephant gifts. That meant we actually had to wear our outfits out in public. We made a lot of people smile.
And we had the best cook (I forget what they are actually called). He was funny. And he was even more than happy to pose for pictures.
The Christmas celebrations have begun! Hope you are having a wonderful week preparing for Christmas and celebrating with your friends and family. Happy Friday!
