Christmas Party 2009 December 22, 2009

Every year my cousin Janeen holds a Christmas party for a few friends and family members.  This year I didn’t know how long I would last since Zach and I were up early for a day of skiing at Powder Ridge.  After coming home from Kimball I freshened up, grabbed some games and a small plate of treats and Zach, Jeff and I headed over for a night of fun.

I really enjoy Janeen’s Christmas parties because it is a rare opportunity for me to let loose and enjoy since often I am the one hosting a party (Mardi Gras, March Madness, tailgate party, New Year’s Eve party, etc). 

We arrived at Janeen and Als around 7pm and enjoyed some appetizers while we sat around catching up with those we don’t see as often.  Janeen had music going in the background and after a scary rendition of the Jingle Bell dance we decided it was time to get the games started before she was too far gone!

Party games are a must at our Christmas and New Years parties.  Although the men complain they always join in and come up with some very unique and creative answers and clues (“it’s white and in the morning you slap some yellow on it”- what in the hell was that?).  Laughter peels throughout the night and in the wee hours of the morning we find ourselves heading for home  cheeks cramped from laughing and ready to do it all over again in a few weeks at my house on New Year’s Eve.  We definitely have to come up with a June or July party like these so we don’t have to wait so long to do this craziness again.
