So Much Ugly in One Room!

Don't my girls look so thrilled to be wearing ugly holiday sweaters?  And isn't Jesse's sweater amazing?  (I found it last minute at the Ramstein thrift store!)  Also, isn't it ironic that our ugly sweater family photos always turn out so nice?  Both girls are looking and J's even smiling!  WHAT!!!

We chowed on a ginormous pot of chili, fresh rolls from the German bakery, chex mix, Christmas candy, and cookies galore.  I successfully made spiced cider, and have decided that it will be our holiday drink of choice :o)  Sooooo warm and yummy!

The kids had a blast.  When I see them all running around happily screaming at the top of their little lungs, I shoot up another quick "thank you" for this great big house that is perfect for hosting parties.

Brandon and Paula!

Yours truly and Tiffany!

Laura, Jen, and Amber.

Laura was the winner of this little beast ;o)  She will get to cherish it forever and ever because she uncovered such a fantastic gem of a sweater that her husband's grandma made for him in the 80s!

Jesse and Kyle tied for runner-up.  Not pictured: Kyle's holiday socks!

Merry Christmas everyone!


  1. Looks soooooo fun, I got to find me one of these parties!

  2. That is such a neat idea! It is so gratifying to see you and Jesse surrounded with people and doing what you do best!
