Christmas Party Weekend

Saturday was the yearly Tarheel Christmas Party.

That's me in the purple vest. Really, I do like Faye (in the red beside me!) I was saving a seat for the photographer...but that didn't work out so well! :)

We had a great time! Our wonder host Mrs. Linda (in the black towards the right), got tons of donations from different ONS's! I came home with a bunch of different WDW and Sampler threads! Awesome!

Oh, but that wasn't the best part! Joanne at the message board where we originally met, back in 2000, gave a $50 gift card to her shop! You won't believe it! Nope you won't! Guess who won it?

All I'm saying...is I'm doing some shopping at 123 at the moment! I never win anything! Yeah Me!

Sunday afternoon, Luke was in our town's Christmas Parade. He was number 69! It was a long parade! He was voted mayor of his class, and that means he is in the student council. So all the student council got to ride in the parade. This is only part of them.

We weren't too sure what to expect from Luke! certainly not this:

Oh wait, this is definitely closer to what we were expecting:

Now this is more like it! Exactly what I was expecting:

If you notice, he's the only one without a Santa hat. He left home without it, and didn't tell me, until it was too late to go back and get it. Apparently the hat didn't match his coat, so he didn't want to wear it! ???? :)

This little guy was in the parade:

On the way home, he took this lovely picture of me! :) I know you want to see me up close and personal, don't you?

Congrats on the wonderful win! If ever you would want to win, this would be it! Happy shopping! I love the "naked People" story!
Have a Merry Christmas!

Sounds like you all had a wonderful time at the party.
Congrats on the win and thanks for sharing all the pictures.

Great pics! And congrats again on the win - be sure to let us know what you buy. It was fun - sorry I had to leave early.

Luke is too funny. It looks like he has fully recovered from the haircut that "ruined his life." :)

Congrats on the win!! The party sounds like a ton of fun! LOL about the naked people! Too funny but I do love what you stitched and finished. The parade looks like a great time. Luke is too funny!! As far as the red eye, there is a free program called Photoscape. I use it and love it. It does really well with red eye for me!

Congrats on the winning and all the finishing up.

Did you all plan the color scheme? Purple, red & black. LOL

I still think it was fixed. $50 GC for naked people. You two are VERY sneaky.

The only problem with your theory, is that Linda didn't know I was making her naked people, and I didn't know she had a gift certificate. And she drew my name out of the basket and showed everybody.

:) Any other theories?
