....Ahhhh, one of my favorite part of the holidays, the annual dorm Christmas party, this year we made it a brunch! I can never say it enough, I AM TRULY LUCKY AND BLESSED TO HAVE MET THESE WONDERFUL GROUP OF PEOPLE, THEY ARE DEFINITELY A BIGGER PART OF MY FAMILY THAN I COULD OF EVER IMAGINED, AND I AM BLESSED TO HAVE THEM IN MY LIFE! :) the dorm Christmas party is "my job." haha, not sure how that happened or when, but I LOVE planning it, and I LOVE having everone over for it! :)
Naturally it is full of fun baked goods, I found these online and decided to make them... they were so cute and so much fun to make! :)
...and I used my snowman plate for fruit, how cute is that plate? I wish I could use it all year long! :) and I made mexican wedding cookie things and banana bread! YUMM!
...and Angie thought it would be a good idea to make it an ugly sweater party, I said sure, BUT of course I waited until the last minute and couldn't find anything, so we went ahead and made me one... Gotta LOVE the fact that I had a bag of holiday fabric just laying around ready to be put to use! ;) AND yes that is a holiday chinchilla... ;) Thanks Angie, it was beautiful!
My friend Nichole makes this AMAZING blended salsa, I went ahead and made it, and even though it got good reviews, they all still said that they missed the original Maria salsa... Guess I should stick to what the people know!! ;) Next year guys... I promise! ;)
...Heather made her and Matt's sweaters, and I'm pretty sure that they won! ;)
The food spread! ;) There was an egg casserole thing, a french toast casserole, that was amazing, thank you Rachelle for the delicious recipe! :) we also had tamales, and those were definitely a hit! :)
...our "surprise" group shot! Charles was busy trying out my new tripod and other camera goodies! ;)
we had a smaller turnout this year... But it was still a lot of fun! :) We definitely missed everyone that couldn't come!
...our idea of a "silly shot!" ;)
Here's to fun times with good friends, until next year! :)
