Have Yourself an Ugly Little Christmas!

This past Monday night, a few of our small groups from church got together for an "Ugly Christmas Sweater Party". For those who might not know, this is basically your normal Christmas party, made 10 times more fun because everyone is asked to wear an ugly Christmas sweater (is there such thing as a not ugly Christmas sweater?). Both of the groups that hosted this party are "mommy" groups, and just about everyone came, including husbands, and including about 30 children. To add to the fun, ColemanShots and I set up a photo booth...probably the best party ever.

Mustaches make any photo better...










I hope your Christmas season is as fun as ours!

Oh wow. That background just really sets the sweaters off so well too. Ewwww!

Looks like you guys had lots of fun! Meanwhile, remember when you got stuck at your friends in crazy snow last year? Well, Scotland's got it this year!

awesome photo booth!! I have to say, you all did a great job finding ugly sweaters except for Gwyneth. she is just too cute and no sweater can be truly ugly on her!

my boyfriend has a thing for ugly sweaters from thrift stores, so last year I got him one for Christmas :) he actually wears it! (it doesn't have tacky appliques, though.)

Liz said...

LOVE Tricia's awesome Christmas jumper dress! That made it doubly fabulous! LOL!

Susan said...

WOW! I would love to have seen the variety of sweaters the other guests wore. Yours is really quite awful, possibly the worst I've ever seen on a stylish guy. I hope that makes you proud. Somehow Tricia managed to pull that look off.
