You know what is awesome at a Christmas party? Christmas Win Lose or Draw. That's right. I bet you never would have guessed it. It. Was. Awesome. So awesome in fact, when we ran out of the Christmas Movies and Carols category, we decided to just go ahead and make up our own things to draw and throw them in the bowl. This will allow the enjoyable game to last from nine thirty to...twelve forty five. THAT'S RIGHT. We seriously played Win Lose or Draw until 12:45. It helps when your sister is a teacher and provides an awesome drawing board like this...
It also doesn't hurt to have a team that realizes THIS is the Christmas movie classic...Gremlins (for the record, it's a Mogwai plus pizza after midnight = GREMLIN) Also...I will no longer be allowing my picture to be taken from below. Not a good angle...
Just so you know, this is how you draw Deck the Halls...
Anyway, the party was awesome. Seriously awesome. The food was great, and we had a wonderful time with everyone. The Christmas gift game was ridiculously fun, and totally free! Nick brought a photo album full of pictures of himself, and I brought the Indiana Jones trilogy in full screen (we want to get it in wide screen...)
We came home with a watch with changeable bands and wine bottle corks. I am not sure Nick was thrilled with the wine bottle stoppers, but I think they are pretty cute! (also will avoid pictures taken from the ground of me sitting...clearly also not flattering...)
Now to random party pics. Here is me and Nick (standing up and looking pretty cute!)
Me and sweet Wesley. He was wonderful all night and had a blast with Nick!
Boo and Chris, who were great hosts!
Missy and Ashley. Missy made the best cupcakes ever!
The Bee family
Ryan and Arielle
Rhi and Andy (who pulled off a Christmas miracle and got off work at the last minute!)
We had Don as well, but I guess he wasn't photographed...oops. We were missing some key people due to illness, but the group that made it had a great time. What a perfect way to kick off the holidays!
