Ugly Christmas Sweater Party

Egg Nog Anyone??
Every year we host the Los Gs Christmas Party. Its usually at the Ricker Smart home, but this year since we have our own place we decided to do it there. I mean getting evicted isn't THAT bad is it?? The party was actually another success. We crammed 35 people into our basement apartment where we had a few contests, played white elephant, and ate holiday treats. One of my favorites was Hot-chognog. Its a drink Brad invented consisting of Hot Chocolate and Egg Nog. It was actually pretty dang good. Almost as good as Danny looks in a turtle neck.

The Elder section of the Partay. Steph, Rick and his date Haley. All sweaters equally gross.

Danny and I with the boys in front of our tree.
Our first Christmas Tree! It struggles...we can only go up from here... that's right attitude right?
Our family's stockings:)
It seemed things were getting romantic in the kitchen...though I hoped not.
The babies
Yes, Millie even made a guest appearance at the Ugly Sweater Party
One of the activities of the Party was an "Ugliest Sweater" Contest. Roman was fortunate to only place 3rd.

Ryan tied with Adam for 2nd. (I swear Grandma Phyl used to have this sweater!)
This is Adam:) (he is wearing his grandmother's sweater, I should've thought of that)

And of course the first place winner of the Contest!!!...BRAD AKA TEFLON B!
In the kitchen getting the GOn GGe ready (Gon Gge is Rocky's way of saying Egg Nog, I cant help but call it that:)
Lilian and I in a Nicholes Sister Sandwich

Roman and Michelle
This pair of giant underwear gets passed down every year in the Los Gs white elephant. This was in fact its third year in the runnings. Its a definite crowd pleaser.

Millicent Meets Santa Clause

Millie met Santa Clause for the first time at the 6th Ward's Breakfast with Santa!
She didn't quite know what to think of him at first...

But like most Smart's, the quickest way to our hearts is through our stomachs...
Santa was quickly Millie's favorite person.

What Do I Get This Guy For Christmas???

Christmas is coming soon and I need some ideas for the Danny Man!!! He has only told me ONE thing he wants...Sour Cream and Cheddar Potato Chips. Done. I need some more ideas though...If any of you have anything you think he would enjoy, our limit is $50. (If you are worried he will read this, don't worry. He doesn't even know how to get to my blog. Sad, I know. He doesn't really get all that into the blogging world.)

These are a few pics of our First Halloween Decorations.  Thanks to Ricker for the Pumpkin and to Sara, Rangi, and Roxanne for the AWESOME Halloween Decorations! Such a great idea!  We loved all of it!!

I pretty much live by the statement, "Better late than never" when it comes to blogging... and laundry;)  But Halloween is one of my FAVORITE holidays, and second biggest in the Rick Smart home (can you guess the first?? Its rhymes with Quaint Ratty's).  So I thought I better blog about some of our hALloWeEniE activities.  
Some Of the SPoOkY Decorations at Ricker and Cher's.  Their house looked awesome inside and out!
The Front Porch with all of Ricker's home grown pumpkins!
Ricker serving up some of your not-so-every-day "Witch's Blood"
It was Delicious.  And EVERYONE got their own silver goblet.  Ricker and Cher go all out...
Everyone who came got a homemade hand wrapped Carmel Apple and Ricker's homemade chili.  Im not sure which was better...
Onto The costume portion of the O'Smarts Halloween Party...
250 lb Goldie Locks and One of the Three Bears.
My favorite costume of the night...Beast, aka Beetle.
The Good and Bad Witch, or so I've heard.  Mindy's make up looked awesome!
Bear, Ski Instructor, Cruella,and Baby Dalmation
Chiquita Banana!
Goblin King and Naaaaachoooooooo in his RECREATIONAL CLOTHE-SSS.
Gorilla and his Banana!
Kip.  Later on at the Los G's Party he met up with Lafonda... No Joke.
The Egyptians!!!
Go Griffandor!!
Cruella and her Dalmation Pup:)
Garth and Wayne from Wayne's World...definitely legit.
Some goodies I baked up for the looks like a 5 yr. old decorated them...
Right after we dipped the Carmel Apples.
A Bundt Cake that I transformed into a Pumpkin!  
It kinda struggled.
Things really started getting spooky....
Los Gs got together and built a SPoOkY Gingerbread house.  This was the abominable Ro-Man Brad and I make out of marshmallows, noodles, and red frosting.
He thinks he's so funny?  Dont worry it's frosting, or as we were calling it all night, BLOOD!!
Danny and I next to the Spooky Gingerbread house.
NOtICE:  Look at what time it is on the clock...11:34, backwards hE;ll TIME!!  SpooOOOkY!!! ha
This is the bridge off the back of the house that leads to the shark infested moat that guards the grave yard.  Notice "Blood" everywhere.  I think it really gives it the "Wow" factor...
Danny and I with our carved there anyway Roman's artistic abilities could be passed down to our kids???
Baby Mills with her Mom's Carved pumpkin.
Danny's Pumpkin actually wasn't bad at all. It said SpoOky, one of my favorite words.
This is my pumpkin.  It was supposed to look like me in Pumpkin form...nailed it.
The Smart's House on Halloween Day!
Check out the sweet graveyard
Halloween Night!!  The house was looking awesome and Ricker had Spooky music blasting... it was THE PLACE to be Halloween '09!
