Christmas Party!

Well, we had our annual friend Christmas party last night! (see parties from 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009) After linking to that many years of Friend Christmas (and those are only the ones since we have been blogging. Friend Christmas has been happening with this group since... maybe 1999? I remember having it at my apartment in 99, but could have been going even longer.) Anyway, this is a long standing tradition, and now I realize I was too busy having fun and not busy enough taking pictures! What can you do? Still, here are a couple from the awesome evening!
Friend Christmas
Ryan and Arielle hosted for the first time this year,(I didn't take their picture together, beginning the Christmas photo fail off right) and they did a wonderful job! The food was so great, plenty of alcohol and hot apple cider, the house was decorated adorable... it was wonderful!

Annnd that's about it for my picture taking. All of those were taken in the first ten minutes of the party (the other guests who were late... sorry, no photos for you!). We started having a blast and I never picked the camera back up. Except to take this...

But beyond that I will have to use my words to tell you about the night. After I sat my camera down, Don, Andy and Missy all came to the party. We all ate and drank and had such a blast. we played the Christmas present game where everyone seemed really happy with their stuff. I know I was, because I fought like crazy to take home the gift I brought. What? They say bring something you really want... so I did :)

We played Apples to Apples and of COURSE Boo and Chris brought the White Board and we played... Christmas Pictionary! Good Lord, we love that game. I have no idea why we only pull it out once a year when the entire group enjoys it so stinkin' much. The girls team crushed the boys team two games in a row (what can I say, we are awesome. And know how to draw things like "Tron" and "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure". Chris said they should have gone with Bogus Journey... would have been harder). Basically we had a truly awesome night. At some point it had me laughing so hard I was actually crying, which is always a good sign that a party is a hit!

So, Happy Friend Christmas! We missed our friends who couldn't make it this year, but we had so much fun at Ryan and Arielle's. Can't wait till next year :)
