Bond. James Bond...

We went to my work Christmas Party on Wednesday. The theme was "Casino Royale" so we decided to dress up as James Bond-ish, high-rollers from the 60s. I found a great vintage evening gown, and a vintage tux for Jack (at this great store in Salt Lake, Decades). Jack's mom had a fur stoll that belonged to Jack's great grandmother-- it completed the outfit perfectly! We ate a delicious dinner and played some Blackjack with fake money. We had a great time!

Here we are, posing in front of our Christmas tree.

Your blog is so cute! I've enjoyed looking at all your recent posts. Sounds like your work party was fun.

You can keep up with us at our family blog.

You and Jack are in our prayers that very soon a very blessed and lucky baby will be placed in your arms. There is nothing more wonderful that I could wish for you. I know you will soon be an amazing mother.

I love you,

Fun blog! I love the whole "bond" look, you guys looked awesome and totally retro. I did find our family "mink" stole, I'll have to show it to you sometime, it's hilarious. I'm not sure if it's mink or ferret...heh heh. Anyway, they still have their heads, with little clips in their jaws so you "clip" their mouths together to wear them around your neck. They also still have feet and little toenails. I'm not sure there is an occasion where you wear something like that, but you know I'll do it if I find the right time. MaryAnn
