Christmas Party 2010

 Ry and I hosted a fabulous Christmas party tonight! We are so happy with how everything turned out. It was such a blast! All the cleaning and hard work we put forth really paid off! We figured it would be best to move the beast into the guest bedroom. I thought I could handle moving it myself. Those things are freaking heavy! And trying to get it into the tiny doorway was quite a challenge. I think we both decided we'll keep it in there for a while : )
 SO much more room without it in there! And the cleaning is all done! I love that feeling!
 Mom's cupcakes were definitely a hit! Just like ALWAYS! Thanks again mom, for making those!
 You can't have a Christmas party without andee's chip mint cookies! Also, a hit.
 Peppermint bark, definitely a must!
 I sure love him to pieces.
 Duh the Grinch should be played at EVERY Christmas party! I must say, Stephen and I were such good quoters, I was very impressed with his skills. He's almost better than I am at quoting this movie.
 Camber and her beau Glenn (aka Andrew) the picture above are Andrews shoes that he bought just yesterday. He clumsily spilt hawaiian punch on them. So we shot some shout on there and let them soak. Sidnee LUCKILY had a tide pen in her purse so we tried that...nada. I was brilliant and decided to soak them in bleach. IT WORKED! Sidnee scrub, scrub, scrubbed and they looked brand new again. BUT THEN, we made the mistake by putting them in the dryer and it burned them. Sorry about your new shoes Andrew.
 Sidnee and Stephen- the party would not have been the same without you 2 : )
 Patrick and Kelsey- they will be getting married in 13 days!
 Kathryn and Anthony- our good friends!
Katie and Kevin- soon to be married!
 Christine and Mitch : )
 Us ♥
 Sarah and Chad- those love birds. VERY newlyweds.
 The Introductions were the best part! Everyone had to say their names, how their and their spouse/boyfriend/fiance met, what they were doing (working, going to school) and if they were to die, what A-list celebrity would they choose for their spouse to marry! Everyone was too nice to each other.
Then we played the "White Elephant Gift Exchange" SO fun! There was such a huge variety of gifts that everyone brought. It was such a fun time. We ended up with an etch-eh-sketch (sp??) and a shake weight! haha!
 Cute Stephen...this couple is hillarious, we love you guys!
 I am IN LOVE with his smile...and he is IN LOVE with that dish!
 Oh yeah baby! Work it!
 Comparing preggo stomachs. So?
 I seriously look pregnant, not that I'm ashamed, I look cute!
 Haha! Either something was put into the drink or we just ate too much!
 Such a fun party, nice work babe! We done gooooood.


  1. Dano, I'm glad the cupcakes were a hit. I can't believe that Stephen was better than you at quoting the Grinch one could be better than you and Bree! I am excited to watch that with you two when she is here. I still can't believe that you thought dad and I were too old to come to the party! I must really love you to still make the cupcakes even though you rejected us. Okay, it looked like you had a great party. It was fun seeing pics of everyone. The preggo pictures are a little embarrassing for some. I won't name any names. :)

  2. Good food, great movie, fun peeps = PARTY! Looks like a blast! I can never make cupcakes looks so perfect, and SWEET white elephant gifts!

  3. Oh man that looks way fun Dani! lots of good couples there. Your fake pregnant belly looks way cute haha it is fake right?

  4. So CUTE Dani girl!! I wish we lived there so we could have gone!!!
    P.S. Can you come live with me AND I loved the preggo belly!

  5. Oh my goodness, that was such a fun night. Ha, poor andrew and his new white shoes...but seriously who wears NEW white shoes while drinking fruit punch out of a cup with a hole in the side?? And I will say Stephen must have been a pro movie quoter in a past life...he can see a movie one time and be quoting it a week later. Its unbelievable! He makes for a good party favor. Thanks for the invite it really was way too much fun! You guys are awesome!

  6. that was a great party dano! lots of love and laughs. Thanks so much!!!
