Company Christmas Party 2008

Jeff and I before we left, in our "Festive Christmas Attire" that the invitation specifies.


We went to my company Christmas party Saturday night. I work part time for a very big company headquartered in Oklahoma. Our owner hosts a very generous party every year with great food, entertainment and lots of gifts. The spouses all get debit cards, worth more as years of service increase. Every worker gets a certificate for a turkey and cash to pay for their Christmas meal.
The must exciting part of the party is the drawing for gifts. Everyone gets a gift and then bigger gifts are given out too.
The last 2 years, I got a Walmart gift card.
look at the prizes in the 2 pictures below and guess what I got?
Lots of cool stuff, huh?
see the red box in the lower right corner,
That is what I got,
a pair of really nice Craftsmen drills.
Jeff really likes them so I did not try to trade. There is usually lots of trading on after the prizes are given out.

Table full of Tiffany crystal bowls, awarded to individual offices.

The food was great this year. There was salad to start, then a buffet line with garlic mashed potatoes, roasted asparagus and carrots, prime rib and pork loin. The individual desserts were Italian Cream Cake and chocolate cake.

The entertainment was country Christmas songs sang by Brad England -
oops, his name is Ty England, Nina caught my typo- sorry Ty, he was really good too

  1. Wow! What a wonderful and generous employer! In this age of layoffs and business closing it's nice to know that there are still some employers out there who know how to treat their employees!
