Ugly Wins!

As I was browsing ideas for our Christmas party, I came across a blogger who stated that ugly sweater parties were "so last year."  I don't know about you, but I'd enjoy one every year! ;)  Maybe next year we'll have a pretty sweater contest and encourage our guests to don their best duds.  And then again, maybe not! :)  Anyhoo, we had a blast at the Christmas party we hosted for our couples Sunday school class.  Food, games, laughter, tacky sweaters...yep, doesn't get much better than that!

I put together a simple, easy, and inexpensive dessert table for under $20.  I used leftover wrapping paper and ribbon to transform my Ikea picture frames into oversize gifts. :)  The rest of the Christmas decor was purchased at Target and Walmart.

We had gingerbread men, Oreo cookie balls, and turtles. :)

We also had vanilla flavored cotton candy...I'm a child at heart! ;)

Candy canes and coal for all the men...I mean, the naughty guests. ;)

Thankfully, we didn't have too many leftovers since I have absolutely no self control when it comes to sweets! :)

Here are some of the sweet ladies from our class!  I'm so thankful for each and every one of them. :)

And, finally, here's a pic of the hubby and me!  I had to get one of Josh in this shirt because I'm pretty sure it's a sight I will never see again. ;)  I still think he looks handsome.  It must be love! :)  We had a great time and are looking forward to our next get together!  Super Bowl XLVII!  Maybe we'll have an ugly jersey contest.  I'm not naming any names! ;)

Now it's on to New Year's Eve!  Ours will most likely consist of watching the ball drop from the sofa and throwing homemade confetti. :)  What about you guys?  Anyone have any plans that are more classy and fabulous than mine?  Doubtful, I know! ;)
