Saturday, December 6

a fun time was had by all

The party last night was deemed a success.  We had expected about 30 people but figure that (from what we can remember) about 40 people showed up.  It's a good thing hubby went to Costco and bought an insane amount of alcohol.  I was laughing when he came home with this humongous bottle of Grey Goose--it had to have been 3 feet tall!  Well, it is now empty as are several garbage cans of various bottles of rum, whiskey, champagne, wine, and beer.  Yikes!  
I had just bought a new iPod speaker system dock for the party and spent several hours last weekend preparing the perfect party mix.  Well, there were so many people and it was so noisy that for most of the party I could hardly hear the music even though it was blasting!  Most people stayed from 7pm until midnight.  Thank goodness the caterer had enough food!  My table decorations were pretty much nixed in order to make room for all of the food.  Oh, well!  It turned out to be a fun evening even though it was my birthday!
We will go out to one of my favorite restaurants tonight to have our own private celebration.  :)

Ooooo...pretty pictures. Love the family pic in front of the doors. I told the kids that I want a photo shoot for Christmas. I'm sure they're thinking "Bah humbug" or when hell freezes over. But hey...look what happened yesterday. We DID freeze over! So maybe I WILL get those photos! :)
