Devin invited me to his friend’s annual white elephant ugly Christmas sweater party this past Friday. We got creative and decided to make our own sweaters. (well, a leather Christmas vest counts as an ugly sweater, right!?) Look at this work of art:
The safety pins were used to give it class….
This? Now this is just a masterpiece in itself. First, it’s leather. Second, it went over a white turtleneck, which was even better. Third, I mean look at the artistry that went into making that.
So with these winning designs, we were certain that we would take first place.
Well, we soon learned that his friends don’t mess around when it comes to ugly sweaters. I mean, look at these!! So yeah, we didn’t win, but we still had a total blast!
We played Catch Phrase (I think that’s what it was).
There was also a white elephant gift exchange, which turned out to be hysterical!
Our wonderful host, Johnnie (Jonny, Johnny—sorry dude!) with his awesome mugs.
Vodka, Magnum condoms, and a cheese Danish. Love it!
He really was in love with his gift!!
Oh, Aaron, you got the perfect gift, lol! Poor guy! He was a good sport, though, and let me take his picture with his new stuff.
Devin and I looking all sorts of hot in our ugly sweater/vest
First and second place with their ribbons and their gifts. Yes, that is what you think it is in his mouth, lol!!
Cracker and Sonja and I hanging out. I love meeting new friends!!
I had a ton of fun, and met a lot of really cool people. I saw a few friends I already knew, that I had only seen in Daisy Dukes and a train conductor outfit. All in all, it was a great time! Thanks so much for the invite, Devin!
One little addition to today’s blog:
I was reading Carrots’N’Cake this morning, and came across this info about a “Snowflake Project” for the children of Sandy Hook Elementary. It sounds like such a neat idea, and so easy to do! Even if you’re not a teacher and don’t work in a daycare, you could do it just for fun for the kids!
A building has been designated (Chalk Hill Middle School) for the children of Sandy Hook Elementary. They are in the process of transporting desks, chairs, supplies and so forth to this location. The Newtown PTA wants to make the children comforted upon their return to school. Please join us in the “Snowflake Project”.
We are asking students to make and decorate a snowflake. They will be hung in the hallways of their new school. Please no words. We want just a cheerful, happy (glitter & sparkle) environment for the students when entering their new building.
Please pass along to any teachers/daycares you think would want to participate.
When sending your snowflakes, please include a note to tell us where they are from (school, class, town, state) to display along with your snowflakes. Please send to:
60 Connolly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 103
Hamden, CT 06514
Happy Trails and Merry Christmas Eve!!!
