The Ugly Christmas Sweater Party

What is the craze with Ugly Christmas sweaters? Fifteen years ago I was wearing these sweaters thinking they were just beautiful and having no idea that years later they would be the laughing stock of  parties and even win prizes for the ugliest! 

This year I wanted to find Mitchell, Jim and I the Ugliest sweaters.  Mitchell really wants to win at the ugliest sweater party. I made mine and Mitchell made his. Jim tried to get away with wearing a Pajama shirt that was kind of Christmasy as he is NOT a sweater kind of guy despite me trying to make him one for 30+ years!!! I managed to talk him into wearing a sweatshirt one just for several hours...LOL.

The party was at Jessica and Brian's Saturday night. She had about 20 people and lots of food, drinks, games and a gift exchange. Mitchell won the prize for the best sweater for the guys and I won for the girls. There were so many great sweaters we all should have won! In the gift exchange I got these awesome mugs which are perfect for me since I like to start my day with a HUGE cup of coffee! Come to find out it was the gift that Taylor brought. I also won several other games so I ended up coming home with quite a stash of gifts! The night was a blast and we look forward to next years party!

Sunday we went to church then came home and decorated the Christmas tree. Of course Jaxson was here to help and of course we had to take an adorable picture of him. He is such a cutie! Today he started his first day at a real daycare which is the first time since he was born...

Finally, the tree is done! Now on to the wrapping and finishing the shopping! Hope you had a great weekend too!
