Ugly Sweater Party and more...

On Monday, December 6th, we had some of my friends over that I grew up with. Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures! :( We just had a potluck. The food was delicious, but the company was even better! We had a good time catching up, and all the little kids had fun playing together. There were 4 kids there and they were all girls!!!

Then Friday the 10th, we had Trevor's friends over that he grew up with (plus Eric and Kayla) for our 2nd annual Ugly Sweater Party. We decided to have a night without kids. Since it was at our house, we let Lilly sleep over at my mom's house! Her first sleepover, and MY first night away from my little princess!!!! She had fun with Grandma and Grandpa. And as a special treat, my aunt Debbie happened to be here from California that weekend, so they had fun together, too!

Earlier that day Lilly helped me make a yummy dessert. By helped I mean she licked the beater clean! She definitely takes after her mom on this one!

Here is Lilly getting ready for her sleepover.
She was happy to leave. She gave us a hug and kiss, said goodbye and was out the door!
Here is the table all set and ready to go. We had ham, potatoes, salad, and rolls.
We had a white elephant gift exchange. Here are the gifts:

Since I have grandparents that read this blog, I will not post the pics of the gifts!!! LOL! Here are the couples with their ugly sweaters.

Ryan and Kristyn:

Benj and Ash (He kept reminding me of Loyd from Dumb and Dumber!):

Josh and Kaylee (These sweaters came from his mom's closet!):

Kayla and Eric (He won ugliest Male Sweater):

Here we are (Trev won ugliest female sweater, although that sweater was found in the men's section!!!!):

Thanks everyone for coming! We had a blast! My cheeks hurt by the end of the night because we laughed so much. Can't wait until next year!

That picture of Trevor in his ugly sweater reminds me of college when Trevor tried on my jeans and had his wife beater on...remember that?

And on a prettier note, Lilly looks so cute licking the beater. So relaxed, enjoying it the way it should be!

Love the Ugly Sweater idea - how fun! Lily looks so content licking the beater, yum!

Kayla and Eric said...

Love the Lilly pics! Also, we had a great time that night. We too can't wait until next year if Eric didn't scare everyone too much. :)
