Going forward.... and back

I'm trying really hard to get back on the horse with blogging. Not only I am trying to go forward, but I am trying to go backwards at the same time. My pictures are always dated, so I am going to try to post the appropriate days backward. It may not have all the fun quips the kids says, but it will be recorded. This blog is for my kids. I want them to have these memories. So, I am going to try to tell them about my childhood, and theirs too! I will have "Memory Monday" where I will write about my childhood. "Throwback Thursday" will be about things that were popular or in style when I was growing up. Dare I say, I actually had an idea for Wednesdays, but I already forgot it? I guess it's good that I am writing things down.

Ugly sweater party

Each year we host an ugly sweater party with some of our friends. We try to keep this party really small.  It seems it is getting harder to keep it quiet though.  Anyways, we all try to find the UGLIEST sweater we can find, bring some drinks and appetizer and come hang out.  We vote for the ugliest sweater winner, (guys vote for girls, girls vote for guys) and this year a traveling trophy was awarded. Next year it will come back to the party, and next years winner will carry on the tradition.  we then go on to do the white elephant exchange.... always fun, as you never know what your gonna get. Here are some pics from the party.
