Tacky Christmas Sweater Party

Last Saturday Campus Life (one of the ministries we head up here at New Tribes Bible Institute) had it's annual Christmas party.
We usually have a formal party. You may have remembered my post from last year about it.
This year we decided to go casual and have our first annual Tacky Christmas sweater party. Everyone I talked to loved it, and I think it will be done again.
We had tacky decorations, tacky food (like jello molds, and fruit cake) and even played some tacky games. To top it all off we watched Home Alone 2. It was supposed to be the original Home Alone, but the dvd rental place had the wrong one in the box. What is more tacky than watching a sequel to a movie? :)
I would like to add that I wish someone would have told me that when you go to a tacky sweater party you are not supposed to get dressed up as tacky as can be, but rather make yourself look gorgeous with a tacky sweater on. At least that's what everyone else seemed to do! Oh well, maybe I can try out to be one of Santa's elves if this missionary thing ever falls through! Ha!

My example of elf attire!

This is what you are supposed to do. Look ADORABLE with an ugly sweater on.

One of the games we played. This is called carpet squares. You listen to what the record says to do, and you copy it, all while standing on a carpet square. It was a hit!

One of the tackiest sweaters there. Yes, it lights up.
