6 years! This makes six years that I have thrown, what I consider to be, an awesome Christmas party and in all those 6 years do you know how many pictures I have to prove its awesomeness??? NONE, ZERO, ZIP, NADA.
It was on the list, "Empty camera card and check batteries." I had it sitting there, ready and waiting to document my once a year coolness. And once again, just like every year, it wasn't until I was walking around my empty house picking up plates and half-full cups that I see it. My perfectly unused camera was just sitting there sadly gathering dust. I was so sure that I wouldn't forget this year because now I'm a blogger, and heavens knows that nothing will get you to take more pictures with a digital camera than becoming a blogger. And what better time to tell people to, "Say, 'Cheese!'" than at a cheesy nacho party?
Ah well, c'est la vie. I remember my parents throwing lots of big parties and I only remember a few that were photographed. It was a lot of fun. I was very unready this year, though, and had guests showing up before the cheese was warm and before I could change out of my grubby cooking clothes and put on some makeup. No one seemed to care and everyone helped me get things finished and out on the table. There weren't as many people here this year but it was a good thing because it gave me time to talk to most everyone more than once. People kept telling me I should sit and relax and enjoy my own party but I have a really hard time doing that. I get very nervous at parties and have learned that if I stay busy I don't freak out. Over all it was a total blast, for me, and I hope everyone else enjoyed themselves. Now, it is time to go and clean out DSSH's office which is where I was shoving, stuffing, and hiding things in that last half hour rush of cleaning =).
