The Eh-Ssweaty Eh-Ssweater.

Man what is up with me and accents lately?  The ironic thing is, I'm terrible at every accent excluding Pleasant Grovian Hick.
Anyways, recently Roman and Michelle hosted a super fun Sweaty Sweater Party at their adorable Christmas house.  
Everyone came dressed to impress.  Yes I put my baby in a Velvet romper, reindeer antlers and then handed her to a 6'5" Elf screaming, so I could take a pic.  Mother of the year award goes to me!
Roman helping Ricker into his classy vest.
 I guess when I'm laughing and Ricker is "Jump flexing" the picture will be blurry.

  Southern Comfort is right!  Roman splurged on the gourmet Egg Nog, and Praise Ye the Lord it was amazing!  I said "There are probably 400 calories in two teaspoons of this stuff."  Rhett quickly replied, "No, 2 sniffs."  It's that good folks.

 There was a ton of good food.
  Cookies, donuts, hot chocolate, egg nog, taquitos and guac, cranberry salsa, chips, POP, ect. 
Ya know, the good stuff. 
 Dare I say our best sibling photo yet??

Roman kept the party cozy with this "Digi-Fire."  So tech savvy that Roman.
Just a couple of gents enjoying nice convo by the fire.
 Next we got out our White Elephant gifts.

 Monica scored big time with an entire bag filled with various breathtaking kitten items.
Ricker looking at his item and forcing a smile.
 Mindy's beautiful Wizard Wind Ornament.
Just throwin' this out there, also a forced smile??

 There were some funny White Elephants, but mine was the best!  It was this amazing oval clock and two dollar bills folded like elf boots.  Totally awesome.
Next the awards!  "Best overall" went to Rhett.
 The "Best Ensemble" category was swept by Roman.  Or should I say Lester?
And the, "Nastiest Sweater" ended with a unanimous vote for Beetle!

 I brought my green screen and new light kit in hopes of having Roman photoshop a classy meadowscape into the background, but with the wrinkles it didn't end up working. 
 So enjoy the ugly green backdrop will you?

 Sister glamour head shots in ugly-as-sin-sweaters?  Don't mind if we do...
 Roman grew and grew his mustache for the occasion.... and then applied a little mascara to "enhance."
And then, where the real party was at...
 the green Houndstooth chair has never looked so cute!

Until next year my Sweaty Sweater friends!

Those pictures are hilarious! Rhett's costume is pretty creepy. No wonder your daughter was screaming.

I can't believe these are even real! haha they made me laugh so hard, your family's humor is fantastic. There should be more people in the world like you.

Thanks for all of your nice comments, they're always so sincere and make my days happy. What you said about service is so true! I mean obviously we hope that it helps others because that's the point, but you really do learn a lot about yourself and grow and become better. You're so wise!

How come I never get invited to these most amazing parties? I wouldn't call what Roman has growing on his upper lip a "moustache." Rhett can definitely pull off the elf thing.
Grandma Phyl says, "Sharing your pictures made up a little for not being able to attend the party." You know how she loves to party.

Sweaty Sweaty party was super fun! Rhett was an awesome elf! Roman could have received the Kip award, and I can't believe how short the rags made your hair look.
