I have decided to do something a little different this year: I'm going to let YOU vote too. We did hand out awards at the party (I'll do a post about that in a couple days with more party pics as well) but I'm adding a BLOGGERS CHOICE award based on your votes! So, check 'em out...and vote in the comment section, please. Pass this on to your friends...the more votes the better the prize ;0)
|JULIE put a lot of time into her "bow sweater" and spent the evening not being able to sit down or lean back on anything for fear of losing or smashing all the bows in the back. A+ for effort!|
|CARL is sporting the lovely, three sizes too small, sweater vest that LIGHTS UP and is complete with personal touches. (See below) LORIN is wearing the American Dream, which includes apple pie, baseball, flags, and corn on the cob.|
|MANDY came dressed as a Christmas tree. She certainly wins the award for enthusiasm, as she entered the house singing "OH CHRISTMAS TREE, OH CHRISTMAS TREE..."|
|PAUL and CAREY|
Carey's sweater also lights up. She spent hours shoving little lights thru the front to light up the tree on the front. She also sported a matching Christmas tree watch!
|CHRIS and SHEA were looking grand in their Christmas pretties. I love the "matching" ties!|
|JERRY and RACHEL|
Jerry's shirt matched his thoughts on the contest. Rachel was all decked out...from her sparkly earrings, to her belt, to her bracelet! LOVE THE ENTHUSIASM!
|KERMIT and RENAI|
I love that Kermit's sweater is borrowed from his neighbor lady! What a trooper to make that effort! Renai accessorised with an adorable hat!
|MICHAEL and CRISTY|
You can never go wrong with a sweater vest and a log cabin with lights all over! Sure to be warn again :)
|TONY and LORETTA|
Tony says the sweater may be ugly, but it is actually very comfortable. I love the Loretta is sporting a coordinating scarf and earrings!
|PHIL and LISA|
Lisa is head-to-toe gingerbread. Literally. Even her socks, turtleneck, and earrings! WOW! Phil is sporting the snowman sweater with pride. His homemade snowman belt buckle is classic and ingenious!
|The first and last time I wear leg warmers! Note that said leg warmers are actually the sleeves from my sweater. :0) Dustin is looking HOT in the lovely, handmade, latch hook tree skirt circa 1972|
|It's too bad our Christmas cards are completed for the year. You may be seeing this again next year....|
|This picture looks full of love. If you could hear the photographer, you would be laughing as you hear her yelling at him "Kiss her! Kiss your wife! Oh come on...you can do better than that!" So funny!|
