Christmas Party

#ballerina #costume

Saturday we went to a holiday party + we had to dress up as our favorite Christmas character.  I've never even seen The Nutcracker, so...I can't say that it's my favorite Christmas character, but that's what I really wanted to dress up as.  I think it's a super cute couples costume :)  I bought all of my costume, but I made Zac's sweatshirt!  Didn't I do a great job?!?! haha :)  I put some hard work into it + hours over the sewing machine.  You can't really see my eye makeup in these pictures, but I whited them out + used lots of glitter.

We also played dirty santa + everyone brought gift cards.  I drew #5 and Zac drew #7.  I won a Target card + Zac won a Memphis Tigers Bookstore card (which VERY sadly he washed in the washing machine + dried it...needless to say it's gone).  GUESS WHAT???  I won best costume!!!  I was so stoked.  I guess that's what happens when you wear hardly any clothing to a party, haha.  Just kidding.  It was freezing that night by the way.  I was awarded a snowman ornament that proudly hangs on our Christmas tree.
