This year's Christmas tree was a beauty. As I mentioned before, it was like a scene out of Christmas Vacation: we turned the corner at the lot and it was like a beacon of light was shining upon it. Too perfect to pass up.
Here we are at our annual ugly sweater party (I couldn't find an ugly sweater...whoops) playing a revival of girls v. boys Pictionary. The girls won. As usual.
Special props go to Lindsey and her delightful thrifted Christmas cape.
Here I am prior to the party preparing some goodies.
And here is part of the spread. We forgot to take a picture of the complete set-up, but it was lovely (pats-self-on-back).
And here is a group shot (minus Lindsey) of me and the fatties at Cafe Rio in Provo over the break. We got together for a quick lunch while everyone was in town (minus Gretchen, Erin and Jenny). It was really fun to see everyone and catch up and ooh/ah over new babies, new jobs, new puppies etc.
Note to self: don't try to hide gum at the side of your mouth for a picture. It isn't actually hiding and it isn't actually doing you any favors. Square smile?
