Then it was onto Saturday night and another party, more drinking and more food. This night luckily ended rather early for us thankfully at 1 am, But then Sunday it was up early to get ready for our 5th annually Merry Thanksmas - No this is not a misspelled. Merry Thankmas is a holiday my niece and I made 5 years ago when we were trying to figure out a time to get together with friends during the holidays.Merry Thanksmas takes place between Thanksgiving and Christmas, the date changes to suit everyone's days off. This year we had 18 people involved and themed it a "Pajama Party" (I wore my rubber ducky feetsie PJ's). We each are in charge of a special dish and a secret gift - one boy and one girl gift. After an amazing dinner we did our White Elephant gift exchange and both hubby and I got some great gifts :)
With food and gifts done bring on the wine, beer, and champagne. Hubby and I finally got home at 3 am and once home he passed out and I was in heartburn city. I think I finally got to sleep around 7 and woke up at 1pm. Now with my first holiday weekend done I look forward to the next 3 :) I'm getting a little old for this - Thankfully it only happens once a year.
How are you all doing? Are you going to office parties, having get togethers to celebrate the holidays? What do you do this time of year?
