So I've already mentioned that we went to a cocktail party Saturday night; what I didn't mention was the fact that this is Matt's favorite party of the year & he fills the roll of party planner and bartender while our neighbor Kim shares the work load and hosts at her home. Mix master Matt does an awesome job of mixing drinks to order & keeping everyone in Christmas 'Cheer'.
In fact, in all the pictures taken Saturday night (the ones I have access to anyway), there is not a SINGLE ONE of me holding a drink. Anywhere. (I assure you I did have some, you just can't prove it photographically.)
Which brings me to my point: apparently Matt and I have developed a bit of a reputation with our eldest off-spring. I'm not sure how, but apparently Evie is under the impression that WE LOVE MARTINIS! WAHOO!
Now - to read these, one might get the impression that the party is never-ending here at our house, and the liquor is free-flowing; fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on the day and the stress-level) that's not the case. And RARELY (ie: almost NEVER) do we mix drinks when the kids are up. Glass of wine? Sure. Two glasses? Probably not until after they go to bed. So I'm not really sure where Evie got this 'awareness' from. The martini cuff links I got Matt for Christmas one year? Maybe.
Regardless, we were a bit taken aback by her drawings, especially since one of them came home with her from school. Nice, huh? We had some sort of conversation with her about what topics were appropriate for 2nd grade art projects, and then later had a good laugh about them. Needless to say, these two pieces of art are going in my permanent file. They make me smile every time I see them. And now LET'S GET THIS PARTY STARTED!
