Another tooth lost. Finally....that silly tooth has been hanging around for a while now. She has a couple of others loose also but there's nothing like having your two front teeth out at the same time!!!! She was wanting to wait to have Mrs. Plyler take it out. What a stab that is to me!!!!...being that I'm in the dental field and all...She says Mrs. Plyler is a professional tooth taker outer. What am I? Chopped liver? Oh well. Hope the Tooth Fairy is good to her!!!!;)
The temperature got down to 9 degrees in Morgantown this weekend. When it gets that cold it doesn't matter. It all feels the same. Seeing some snow would have been nice but I only got to see a few flurries. We went to a family party at Paul's cousin's house. We had a good time. Kylie got to play with a few of her cousins and Spencer got to make lots of smiles and coos. I on the other hand ended up in Urgent Care due to a terrible sinus infection and I am still feeling the pain. I spent about 6 1/2 hours in bed on Sunday due to exhaustion, a clogged nose and very painful face. I didn't even know I had visitors. My poor mom and sister and her family have the vomiting sickness that's been going around. I got out of there just in time...although we already had it. Anyway... I was able to get a couple of good pictures with everything that went on.
Well, first of all, I do apologize for such a long blog. I can't seem to get my slideshow to work properly. So please try to enjoy all the scrolling. Each year our wonderful boss has a fantastic Christmas party for us at his house. We all bring a dish. He supplies the ham and turkey and drinks and a whole lot more. We are so fortunate to have jobs the way the economy is right now so it makes it that much more appreciated. But I don't think anyone could have as good of a boss as we do.
The beginning of the dinner party.
Kim and Christy.
Me and Christina
Donna and Kim
We have a White Elephant gift exchange. Everyone usually keeps what gift they choose. But this year Donna opened a very soft blanket that everyone oohed and ahhed over and pictured themselves wrapped snuggly in it.
Take anyother look, 'cause Christina stole the blanket from Donna. Prior to the theft, Donna was giving her sad story about how much she needed a blanket because she was having heater problems at home. But that didn't seem to stop Christina! She had to have that blanket!:)
This isn't just some lame Christmas party... We make sure we make the most of it!
This is where the "Boss Man" comes into play. He always thinks of clever ideas to make the party interesting. This is a money jar to guess how much money is in it. All $1.00 bills. Any guesses? Oh, and by the way, I won!!!! I guessed $35.00. The exact amount was $43.00. And what is this you ask? Dr. Wells gave us 3 tries to roll the dice to see whose added to the highest. And who rolled this you ask? Why, I do believe it was me!!!
Rock, Paper, Scissors
You see, all these games (money guess, dice rolling, Rock, Paper, Scissors, and trivia questions) are played and everytime you win or get a correct answer you get to put your initials on the board. Then Dr. Wells draws cards from a deck and if he lands on your square, you win. Christy and Donna were the big winners of that. (Lucky them- I'll keep that amount to myself.)
The last fun thing of the night was covering Charlie Brown up with a bag. (Only a prank...I love Charlie Brown!) Dr. Wells and I have an ongoing argument about what color Charlie Brown's shirt is. I say yellow and black...he says orange and black. Little does he realize that in this scene he is wearing an orange winter coat--over top his yellow shirt. Of course he's going to buy this yard decoration because he has on orange but the majority of the time he is wearing yellow. Who is with me on this? The final thing we do at the party is another type of gift exchange. Over the course of the year we get free things when we order supplies. We save them all year long and then have a drawing at the Christmas party to see who gets them. This is what Paul and I won. A black luggage bag, grill set with steak knives, steaks, $25.00 Macy's card, MP3 player, $25.00 Home Depot card, wet/dry vac, full service car wash. The slippers, cocoa, bracelet, reed diffusers, steaks, and wine are from the exchange. Needless to say, we made out pretty well. We had a great time and LOTS of laughs.
