Christmas Eve with the Speechly's!

The Speechly Christmas party was so fun this year. It was held at our church and we ate and talked and had a little singing of course from my Uncle Richard and his daughter Shannon. It is so good to get together with the extended family to see how everyone is doing. Thank you to evertone who came, it wouldn't have been the same without you! I love all you guys!

Party Preview

Yes it is true, my friend Marissa and I are throwing an Ugly Sweater Party!It just seems like everyone is doing one these days, so we've decided to jump on board! So we ventured out on a snowy Saturday night, in search of the perfect sweater at the D.I. But we didn't have the best of luck, so we purchased the Ugliest sweater we could possibly find, (not so ugly). And then headed off the Michaels for some embellishments. We got all the bells and whistles to make our sweaters the nastiest. With some luck we found some bells, but no whistles, and some feathers, bows and fringe! So we worked ever so hard sewing on each feather and each bell, and must say, that I think we have produced two of the ugliest sweaters. And am proud to say that people have offered to vomit on them. Mission Accomplished!
