Well, holiday fun is certainly in full swing! Last weekend Nick and I attended his squadron’s Christmas party, which just happened to be an ugly Christmas sweater party. I don’t know where the idea of ugly sweater parties originated, but they are pretty awesome. Instead of a sweater, I opted for an awesome snowman turtleneck. I am still curious who buys these things for purposes other than making fun of them.
Nick is growing a mustache (ugh) thanks to the Navy and weird traditions I will never quite understand. The ‘stache went well with his tacky reindeer sweater, enhancing his creepiness. I believe someone hit the nail on the head when they noted that he should not be allowed anywhere near an elementary school. Creeper.
