Ugly Christmas Sweater Party & Concert

Saturday night we went to an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party at a local brewery. They had a local band playing Christmas music (including “Let it Go”) with the lead singer being our worship leader from church. Yeah, that’s right. We have a rock star as our worship leader. πŸ˜‰

It was a great time – eating from a local food truck, drinking local beer, laughing with friends and listening to good music. It was a nice break from all the craziness of life lately.

And you can’t have an ugly Christmas sweater party without a contest. There was a plethora of lights, garlands, tinsel, doilies, ornaments and mistletoe.

This guy on the end here was proclaimed the winner. I mean, any guy who can come out into public while wearing a Dickie and sporting a hairdo that Ken Barbie would be envious of, deserves to win first place!

We had a great time and I look forward to next year’s! I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays!
