Prompt 9: Party
What social gathering rocked your socks off in 2010? Describe the people, music, food, drink, clothes, shenanigans.
We had a housewarming party last weekend, which was the first big party that we've thrown at our house. We got the entire house clean and decorated for Christmas, made a bunch of food, invited some of our favorite people, and enjoyed the fun!
I am not usually one to throw parties because I get worried about everything that could go wrong. (Will people come? Will they have fun? Will we have enough food?) But Andrew is really good at organizing parties and encouraging me to invite people over. So we did and it worked out wonderfully. We're even thinking of making it an annual event to host a Christmas party on the first weekend in December so mark your calendars for next year!!!
We had all kinds of food and drinks. We also had all kinds of people. We had a lot of friends from church over as well as a lot of Andrews work friends, with some others thrown in as well. People got to see our house and meet our puppy, Schmoo. We also got to see Schmoo see little kids for the first time, which was really entertaining. People really seemed to enjoy themselves. I know I did!
