Tacky Christmas

Hosting parties and random get-togethers with our friends is one of our favorite things to do. But no party is ever better than a Christmas party, because a Christmas party is at Christmastime! And what good is a Christmas party without tacky Christmas sweaters? No good at all, I tell you!

Monday night, our Life Group (which is basically our best friends) and a couple new friends (YEA for new friends!) showed up at the Mehaffey residence dressed to impress. Every last one of them was sportin' a superbly tacky Christmas sweater. New Andy and Emily (yes, another Emily) even made their own just for the occasion. Now, that's dedication!

Brad created a coveted "Most Tacky" award by placing a classic Goodwill tie (adorned with a puff-painted "You're Tacky!") into a nice gold frame. After each person placed their anonymous vote into the elf hat, New Luke and Laura won the honor of being the tackiest guests of 2010. Don't you agree that they totally deserved it?

The night ended with a rousing game of Quelf. Seriously, this game is hilarious! We just can't get enough of it! Some highlights include Luke and Laura rapping about their appearance (how fitting), me dominating New Emily in a thumb war, Stacey and Laura patty-caking, Charles talking like a charismatic preacher, Brad and me jumping up and down like chickens (when we weren't being forced to point randomly into the air for an entire round without saying a word), Wes and Stacey cheering for people every round, then giving them a score after each turn, and Kris retrieving a stick while panting like a dog, to name a few. I mean, for real, you could not facilitate more random occurrences (or more laughs) than this game creates.

Pretty much, the First Annual Tacky Christmas Sweater Party was a complete success. I absolutely love making great memories with great friends, and I couldn't be happier with the people whom God has surrounded us with. So much fun!

Are you dressed for the holidays? You better get ready. It's sneakin' up on us fast!!

I'm super-glad you enjoy Quelf. You definitely get more use out of it than I did. :)
