annual christmas party

this year we had our high school friends' christmas party at our house. we had a lot of fun, although we sure did miss steph, ade, and michelle. we ate some food, had some laughs, reminisced about high school (sorry hubbys . . . ) and exchanged some awesome white elephant gifts. here are a few pics of everyone showing off their new treasures. for sure the award for "most creative" goes to christy, who made two t-shirts with a couple classic high school sayings: "preesh" and "let's go somewhere and promise to be friends for ever." i'm not exactly sure who coined "preesh;" it was one of the boys--reese or josh or dj or someone. and the second saying is from our darling dede. who else could have come up with such a classic phrase???

here are nick and jamie showing off their new shirts.

christy and les with their enema, desk clock, and kitty calendar.

dede with her new bump-it and james not displaying his home pregnancy test and tweezers with a built in light.

amy, pheobe, and dj with their "preesh" shirt and music playing snowglobe.

and peter and me with our bath glove and Teachings of Joseph Smith book. hmm. i guess someone knew that we need to be better about reading the lessons before sunday . . .

thanks for such a fun night everyone!

What does the rest of that Utah t-shirt say? It sounds like it's about to heckle the yewts.

it's a legit Utah shirt. a byu fan brought it, but nick got it and he's a U fan so he was excited.

Even tho I'm a generation away from you, I still have a 'forever friend' from high school and can still remember where she said we'd be friends forever...the school cafeteria!

Hopefully one day we can attend one of your annual Christmas parties. They look off the hook.
