There are a couple of things I miss about working for someone else. Paid vacation and sick leave top that list, but somewhere down around “not having to pay for everything when it breaks” and “having other people to give your problems too when they get too big” is the annual Christmas Party. We always had a great time at the company office party, and definitely, miss it.
Five years ago I decided it was time to organize my own Christmas party, and since I don’t have co-workers, I invited three of my best friends instead. Instead of going out and doing something expensive and extravagant, I invite them over to my house and feed them, make them do crafts, and force them to watch terrible Christmas movies.
Wednesday night was our 5th annual party, and it was fun and filling as usual! In fact, I somehow woke up this morning feeling fuller than when I went to bed, haha.

And in celebration of me finally getting a new phone, and my hopeful return to making some videos on an at least semi-regular basis, I made a short vlog to bring you along with me to the party! I edited it right on my phone this time so please forgive the less than stellar editing, but I hope you enjoy the festivities I put my friends through, haha.
And you know what? I’m not the only one who feels like they are missing out not getting to have a Christmas party, so today I’ve linked up with some of my East Coast Moms Media friends so we can all share our solo (or not quite solo) Christmas parties! I hope you’ll hop over to see what they were up to this year for their parties!
