I was reminded today that it's been awhile since I've blogged. So I'm returning. But I'm not returning empty-handed. No, no. I'm returning with a challenge. In case you haven't noticed, the Christmas season will soon be upon us. And you know what that means. Christmas parties, snow (for those not in Texas), Christmas trees and decorations, visiting friends and loved ones and general good will and Christmas cheer all around. And Christmas sweaters. You know what I'm talking about. Those beautiful garments adorned in bright greens and reds, often with pictures of old Frosty himself.
So, the challenge: Or maybe it's more of a contest...Find the ugliest, most fanciful, overly decorated sweaters you can find for your family. Thrift stores are replete with these things so don't tell me you can't find some. If you're really having trouble you can contact my mom and see if she will allow you to raid her stash.
Once you've found a gem for each family member you need to go somewhere PUBLIC and have a STRANGER take your FAMILY PICTURE, at which point you will submit it to me via email. The deadline is - of course - December 24, with the winning family to be unveiled on Christmas Day.
I would also encourage you to each post your submissions on your own blogs - that way we can all have fun!
Happy Holidays and happy hunting!
