First "Annual" Christmas House Party

Last night the Murph and I had our first "annual" Christmas house party.   I think everybody had a good time.  I know that the Murph and I had a great time with our friends that we haven't seen in a while.  What a busy, busy week it was with the final moving, repairing and closing on my house and then preparing the Murph's house for the party.  I am glad we had all the decorations finished Thanksgiving weekend.  The Murph started cleaning Thursday afternoon while I was at closing and then Friday we had our designated food items to pick up.  I think it turned out pretty good.  We had about 20 people with lots of beer and wine and way too much food.  We've been eating leftovers all day today.

The last of our friends left after 2 a.m. so we didn't get to bed till late, then we slept in and stayed home all day.  We didn't even go to the gym to workout.  I'm still in my pj's.  There was an amazing amount of empty wine bottles scattered throughout the kitchen this morning.   We forgot to put any non-alcoholic drinks in the cooler, but nobody asked for anything so I guess everybody was ok with the beer and wine.  Finally got a picture of my best buddies, the Running Nazi and the Babysitter and me all together in one place with make up on and no running clothes or pony tails.  I didn't get any pictures of the food or any in the kitchen or dining room where the majority of our friends were hanging out.  We were too busy having fun and I totally forgot to take pictures until the end of the party.  Oh well, here's all the ones I got, not very many.  I will try to do better at the Murph's annual Super Bowl party.

Throwing the empty wine bottles away...


  1. that is a good turnout, looks like it was fun. gotta ask, what's going on with the christmas tree? ;)

  2. Well the tree was just a little too tall for the ceiling but we put the angel on top anyway. She's a little sideways. The Murph says she's looking down on us. The running nazi's husband said she was a base jumping angel. Maybe she'll be able to stand up straight in our next house.
