I've been a Warren East employee for about 7 months now, so I'm still a definite newbie. It's really a fun place to work, with great people, but right now at Christmas time, the fun has been amped up considerably.
Mainly in the form of extra goodies, and tighter pants.
But imagine my excitement as I went to experience my first work Christmas party, and in the words of the boss, not just any Christmas party but, THE BEST CHRISTMAS PARTY, EVER!
One of my co-workers, who happens to work at many different schools, said "you can't miss the WEHS party, cause you got good country cooks!"
And that we do!
They food was to die for!
And I wasn't the only one who thought so...
Proof in the smile.
But the boss had more than good food up her sleeve...
SANTA! SANTA! I KNOW HIM!
So yeah, Santa and an elf made a stop by the party. And they weren't just there to be all, ho ho ho'ish, oh no, they were there to pass out gifts.
And let me tell you about the sheer horror that flashed before this boys eyes when he realized he had to go see Santa to get his gift.
He wanted the gift, yet, he didn't want to sit on his lap. WHAT TO DO?
I'll tell you what you do, you turn fifteen lovely shades of red and do what you have to do to get the goods.
Yeah, he was pretty much mortified, but we were proud of him for dealing with it. Ha!
Hope was slightly timid...
But much more open to the idea.
I might even say, happy about it.
But the kids weren't the only ones who got treats.
We played a dirty Santa game, with 'as seen on TV gifts'
It may have been mass chaos...
And that is exactly how I would describe the entire evening...
Maybe more fun for some than others.
What is this phase Pierce is going through? GRUMPY OLD MAN.
So, just show them how it's done.
Get your fun props...
And just be goofy.
And you know what?
It was, THE BEST CHRISTMAS PARTY. EVER.
