Today, was our Division Christmas Party. The party started at 11am. It was supposed to go until 3pm. We had to dress like our favorite Christmas character. I was going to be a sugar plum fairy, but that would just be too much. I thought about Cindy Lou Who. I am not sure, if I feel like doing my hair like that and putting all that much effort into it. I decided to be Sally from the nightmare before Christmas. I already had the costume and the make up. I changed into my costume around 10:30am.
I was ready. I didn’t go all out with the make up. I just did a little. Nancy dressed up as an Elf. We loaded the cart up with things to take up to Africana. There weren’t any faculty around. The staff were ready to party.
When we arrived up to Africana, we set our grab bag gifts under the tree in the conference room. Then, we went to into the kitchen and surrounded around the food. Everyone was dressed up for the most part. We were all waiting on Linda to arrive with fried chicken. She was going to surprise everyone with her costume. I had a feeling that she was going to come dressed as Santa.
Eventually Linda arrived with the chicken, and she was dressed as Santa! I knew it! We all ate lunch first in the conference room. Then we played games. One of the games we played, was we had to build a gingerbread house in teams. Each team had to have a leader. Everyone else was to be blind folded except the leader. I was the leader on my team. The leader couldn’t touch the house, but could touch the supplies. My team consisted of Wynn, Nancy, and Lynn, the blondes. Our house didn’t stand.
It was fun. We had a good time doing the team building exercise. After the gingerbread game, we played a game of family feud Christmas style. We had to an answer a questionnaire before the party and Jenna gathered the answers and put them into the game. We all had so much fun and made so much noise.
After the jeopardy game, we did the grab bag gift. When it was my turn to choose a gift. I chose the sparkling box. I opened the box and inside was a picture frame. The picture in the frame was a selfie of Linda my division administrator. I cracked up laughing. Everyone thought it was so funny. This gift was made for me. I love it. I have it in my office. At the end of the party we took a group picture. We truly do have such a good group of people in our division.
