Ike Christmas Party

Friday night Dan took me to the Eisenhower Christmas party. It was our first year attending (and our last chance to go) so I was pretty excited. The party was at a hotel in Portsmouth so we decided to get a room there and not worry about getting home late at night. We met another couple there and headed over to the party around 8:30.

The party was full of eating, drinking, dancing, and laughing. I had a blast. Everyone we went with was so much fun. It was REALLY nice to have a night out. We don't get around to doing it that much. Enjoy the pictures:
Here I am in the hotel waiting for the shuttle to pick us up!


The IKE ice sculpture. Awesome.

A self portrait to end the night:


All in all it was a GREAT time and I'm so glad we went!

Now for some fun Christmas pictures. Our tree:


Our house all lit up!! We bought the LED lights this year and they're a big hit! People stopped by the house today to ask Dan where we got them. They said they had driven by before and loved them and wanted to find them!! The picture just doesn't do them justice!
That's it for now. I hope you enjoyed the update!

Cute pics. That ice sculpture is off the hook. Also, your house lights do look really cool. We didn't see the tree all lit up outside--did you guys just do that, or did you not have it on last week?

And has the Christmas lights spirit--ahem--spread to the rest of the neighborhood yet? ;-)

It looks like the Christmas party was a lot of fun. Ours was the begining of November...it seemed pretty early. Mr Football's cousin is on the IKE, they're getting ready for deployment right? Your house looks fabulous, hopefully we'll get our lights up soon...we haven't been very motivated.

The Christmas tree & the lights look amazing. Sometimes I wish I celebrated Christmas! :)

And you & your husband are adorable. It's so nice to see you so happily married.

hey, maybe we can try for a visit something after the new year? I'd love to see you. XOXO.

Your tree makes my minitree look like the Charlie Brown tree's backwoods cousin...


:(

My poor tree.

(P.S. You look like a hotness and adorableness sandwich in those pictures. And I need your snail mail address. Facebook message me or something!)

I'm so glad you guys got out and went to the party. You both looked adorable all dressed up. Looks like fun times! Good for you for taking pictures. It seems like I always take my camera along as an accessory, not a device used to take photos. :(

Your house and lights are spectacular! I would expect nothing less from Danny boy.

Hope you guys are doing well. I love you both!
