Party on, Wayne! Party on, Garth!

Being a anti-social creature, I stepped way out of my comfort zone by attending three different parties on Friday. Being the anti-social social butterfly that I am, I somehow found myself planning a office retirement luncheon for a co-worker and a holiday afternoon staff party on the same day. After weeks of planning and hours of decorating, it had finally come down to the day! The snowflakes were hung, the streamers were draped and the presents were wrapped. For your pleasure, a photo montage of the day.

My work buddies and me. (Doesn't Libby look fabulous?)

After stuffing ourselves on chips and Mexican food, we dragged ourselves back for the office. Three hours later, we were dining on Libby's delicious peanut pie, cookies and homemade eggrolls. (I'm so special, Libby made Ben and me our own peanut butter mini-pies. Mine were non-chocolate, since I'm allergic.)

I've eaten so much sugar I'm probaly diabetic after this weekend.

After eating more sugar than any person should in one day, I drug my bloated self home and attended our neighbor's graduation party. Then I went on a cleaning and dancing spree around the house before passing out. The next morning, we woke up around 5 a.m. and drove to my parent's house for an early Christmas celebration. We opened presents, attended a performance of the nutcracker and played rook. I got some wonderful gifts, and was thrilled to see my family liked everything we got them. My mom cooked an awesome dinner, and I stuffed myself with Swiss chicken, stuffing, corn, rolls and pecan and apple pie. Eventually, Ben drug my dazed happy little butt home.

It was a wonderful weekend. Ben wants to tell ya'll Merry Christmas too.
