For something different, Misty and I decided to have an actual theme to our party, and that was to dress as if we were on the infamous "Worst Dressed List." Normally we dress up and look super elegant. But not this time!
What do you think? Think we would've made it on that list?

We created little ballots this year, too, which was also something new for us and our guests. We all had to fill out the ballots ahead of time to vote for who we thought would win in each category. The winner got a little trophy. Guess who ended up winning? That's right--the hooded goofball you see in the middle of everyone below:
Some of the girls in this picture have been coming to this party for years. For others, it was their first time. We welcome anyone who wants to play along, but the one rule is you have to dress up.
We've also started taking these group shots you see above. We pick the best one out of all the cameras, and we print out large copies of it. Then we all sign the pictures with a sharpie so they look autographed, and we all keep one.
I love the tradition. I love how it evolves every year. It's fun to see how much we all change every year and also how much we stay the same. I hope we can do it for decades more.
Are there any traditional get-togethers that you have every year? Feel free to share in the comments section below!
