{all the whos down in who-ville}

I am so done with ugly sweater Christmas parties. They're the Jim Belushis of Christmas parties. Even the thrift stores have caught onto this, and now ugly Christmas sweaters, which I will wear one time for this lame party, cost more than cute Christmas sweaters, which I will wear all fall, all winter, all spring, and quite a bit of the summer.

Because I live in Saskatchewan.

But the point is not that.

The point is that we did not throw an ugly sweater Christmas party this year. We took over Liz's uncle's house (he's in Africa or something) and, complete with elaborate hair-dos and lots and lots of food colouring, partied Who-style. {And then we cleaned up really, really well afterward so that he won't ever know.}

  1. This is such a good idea. It looks like it was a great party! I may have to get crafty and have a not-ugly-sweater-themed party this year too.

  3. What an adorable idea! You guys are so cute. Plus I love the little you in your header.

    I've never worn an ugly sweater, but I have worn t-shirts that look like ugly sweaters!

  6. Amazing! The thing that I loved the most were the hair-dos! It must've taken so much time to do those!

    I'm getting into my hibernation phase by now, wearing two or three sweaters some days, and forget about makeup! I love winter!

  7. Okay, you guys rock. Can't believe you had a Christmas party already; that's fantastic! And just for the record, Jordan's costume was soooo lame! He dresses like that every Sunday! Will have to tell him how disappointed I was in his creativity.
