Holiday Party 2009

Sunday, December 13th was our Annual Holiday Party, hosted by Sunshine and Jaime.

Yummy hot apple cider, with or without rum or red wine (Eowyn told us about that combination and it was much better than you might think!)

Let the White Elephant Gift Exchange Commense!

Justin and Cora


Justin selflessly shared his yummy goodies at the end of the gift giving


Eowyn and the AFLAC duck


Kali and Justin

Kali observes Justin's new magic eight ball...which won't be his much longer...

Reminiscent of his portrayal of Billy Mays for Halloween, here's Matt promoting the always awesome Almond Roca...

Boo-yah, Sunshine stole the magic eight ball and big bag of yellow balloons
(too bad, so sad, Justin P.)...

Quote of the evening "i'm already edible" said by Cora after opening up fruity delicious bath stuff

Heidi and her daughter

Not a bad spread!

Tree-Trimming Party

November 22nd was our Tree-Trimming Party. We gathered after the second service, cranked up the Christmas tunes, stuffed our faces with sandwiches and chili, and got to work. Here's our "before" picture (plus Charlie)...

and our prep work...

We were all needed, from tall to small...

Katie didn't mind doing the dirty work...

Here's Jordan doing the honors of putting the star on top of the tree...

Once again, Katie risks her life in the name of Holiday decor...

Here, our Minister, James, and Intern Minister, Marcia, duke it out...

The finished product. What a beautiful tree... (Justin, you are SO busted for hiding behind Scott)

What an adorable family, Katie, Matt, and Charlie...

Pals, Sunshine and Lisa...

Our newest arrival, Carter with his surprisingly well-functioning parents, Jordan and Ellie...

Jaime and Sunshine with their kiddos Ryen and Jayna...

Thank you to everyone for being there: Jaime, Sunshine, Katie, Matt, Lisa, Daniel, Eowyn, Scott, Justin, Ellie, Jordan, and Zane. It was such a fun and team-oriented group that it hardly seemed like work.
