Christmas Vacation 2008

Last night was the annual National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation party. A few years ago, we decided it would be fun to dress as characters from the movie for the party. It's getting harder to come up with an original costume! There were lots of delicous things to eat, but I showed uncharacteristic restraint. Ha! Just kidding. I parked myself by the table and ate until I couldn't hold one more oyster cracker.Here's the 2008 group picture. There were some, um, clever costumes that hadn't been done before. David was dressed as Clark Griswold, and I was dressed as Frank Shirley, Clark's boss. Hmmm... :) I seem to be missing the 2004 picture, which was the first year that we dressed up. I am also missing the 2005 group picture, but here's David and I in 2005.

In 2006, Krista took over the hosting. I love having it there - I don't have to clean or cook! :) And her Christmas decorations are always gorgeous.

Here we are in 2007! As you can see, people get really creative with their costumes. Todd's silver suit is duct tape!

I don't think I've ever been so jealous in my entire life. I would SO love to be at this party. You are so fun!

Keetha - I see a road trip in your future! You, the Fiance, and the Child could come to the Christmas Vacation party AND go to the Peanut for BLTs! :)
