Brian's company Christmas party

On Sunday we went to Gamba in Merrillville for Brian's company Christmas party. We had so much fun!

They had a room set up just for the kids - they ate dinner in there, watched movies and did crafts. Would you look at this picture - look at all the children lined up getting ready to be served their dinner - I just thought this was so funny to see them all sitting at this formal dining table with napkins on their laps.

Santa showed and each of the kids sat on his lap and got a present.

Then the dancing began! Olivia just let loose - it took her about 2 minutes to get warmed up and then there was no stopping her until 9:30 PM - she had a blast with her new best friend in the green dress. I have better pics of her, but I know some parents don't like their kids posted on the Internet so I'm only posting the pics of her where you can't see her face. Then, the lady in the black dress taught Olivia how to do the chicken dance. Would you believe that this lady has 7 kids? Ages 12, 10, 9, 8, 7, 4, and 1! The kids were so well behaved and they actually got two pictures in front of the Christmas tree where EVERYONE was looking at the camera! I envy them so much - it was so nice to see them interact with their kids and to see that they are just as excited about their 7th child as they were their just gave me goosebumps to watch them - I would love to be like them one day, but I'd be bald and in the whack-o house!

I took some video of Olivia dancing which was absolutely hilarious. The room was kind of dark so the video doesn't look too great and it's sideways and I can't figure out how to change that - if you know please clue me in! I know the video is long, but if you can get through it I promise you will be rewarded in the end - that's all I'm gonna say so that Brian doesn't kill me. I kind of got distracted and captured some other people dancing - there would have been more, but of course my battery died. Enjoy!

Olivia must've slept good that night! :) She was getting down - not to mention the people that distracted you. He looked like he was having some sort of seizure or something! :) Looks like you had a great time though.

He was like that ALL night and I'm not exaggerating!! His shirt was drenched too.

So cute! That picture of O by the tree would have been a perfect Christmas card. Her expression is so cute! :)
