Christmas Party Madness

December 23, 2011

in Blog, Family

So our Christmas party last weekend was another success!  It was a smaller crowd this year (just over 20), but it was a nice number.  Had more of a chance to chat with everyone and hang out versus rushing around all night replenishing food etc.

The only downside was…I drank more martini’s!  Yep, I was definitely feeling good! Now I remember why I rarely drink.  The next day, I felt super sluggish.

You will see how the night progressed from the following series of pictures 😉

It was a “James Bond” theme, so the gals were glammed out in dresses and gowns, the boys in suits.

Before the night started, Brent and I in our outfits…

This was my grad dress from 1997!

A girlfriend and I

My brother and his wife

Busted sneaking some Healthy Gingersnaps!

Some of the boys and their bowties

Drinks were starting to flow freely!

An ode to the stache

The start of a drinking game. Object was to take a shot, place your cup on the end of the table and flip it so it would land on the rim. Then the person beside you could go.

Girls won 3 in a row...

But then the boys came back to win. What a shame...

Having fun with a party favor. The fake cigarette smoke was water vapor.

Brent trying to look refined...

Needless to say, it was a good time had by all!  I didn’t take any pictures of the food.  Bad lighting. But here is the menu.  There were a couple of last minute additions.

Question! How many holiday parties have you attended this year?

From the Fretwell family to yours…Merry Christmas!

    • Kristine Fretwell

      Sorry, just saw this now 😉  I’m not sure where that fake cigarette was from.  A girlfriend brought it, and she got it from a friend of hers.  It was cool, it looked so real!

        Yeah, I’ve seen them just not ones that had fake smoke! Quite nifty!
