We had the annual Christmas potluck at Earth Mama HQ this week. There were silly headbands, festive socks and food like nobody’s business. Every year we have a White Elephant gift exchange and prizes for the most – uh – outlandishly amusing Christmas costume. And wow did we have some entries!
Mama’s Helper Amy created a lovely combo of reindeer/Swiss Miss/pixie/country maiden all tied together with a dazzling sequined elastic belt (custom made of course).
Lisa and Orione went for the more modest attire. For Orione, a glittery snowman on her shirt is WAY outside her usual dress code.
Customer Care Mama Tracey sported a particularly festive outfit complete with a skirt made from a tree skirt. Sadly, this picture does a better job of illustrating her breast pump than the tinsel-encrusted Christmas tree on her shirt.
Graphics Mama Cassandra, heading to the airport right after work, squeezed in a bit of tasteful red and green, not wanting to alarm the TSA agents.
Nicole, Head of Operations, decked more than the halls for this, er, tasteful, homemade look. Don’t you just want to plug her in?
Mr. Web Dude Ryan got the coveted musical Santa during the White Elephant gift exchange…
…while Tracey was overjoyed to receive a Michael Jackson Christmas tree ornament.
Mama’s Helper Amy was awarded the grand prize by CEO Don. Congratulations, Amy!
Festivity personified, Nicole, Eileen and Head Mama (and chief Party Paparazzi) Melinda.
Back Row: Orione, Eileen, Lisa, Don, Bob, Amy, Nicole, Lyuba, Cassandra
Front Row: Ryan and Tracey.
Out of Sight: The many mamas who work with us every day from afar who couldn’t make it to the party. We missed them mightily and tipped a snowman cap in their honor!
Merry Christmas and Peace on Earth to all of you, from all of us at Earth Mama HQ.
