Obviously, another big difference was the people! This was our first PNW Oscar Party. We couldn't have been more thrilled with the turnout and how creative people were. In fact, I'm quite sure the majority of people in the room had never *gasp* never watched the Oscars in their entirety before. Shocking, isn't it? Mmmhmm. They were troopers, though. Watched the whole thing with us, got creative with the food and gave Ralph a run for his money in Scene It movie trivia. What more could we ask for?
On the people theme, our Dayton friends were not left out of the festivities. Our dear friend, Amanda, and friends, Phil and Kristi, decided to carry on the tradition and made it their own! They did such a fantastic job. All our friends there brought their collective creative games and made some FOOD. I was drooling on my computer screen, guys! Seriously! We had a chance to connect the two parties via Skype. Can I tell you how blessed I feel to live in this modern age?! It's awesome. Just awesome.
The girls seemed to have as much fun as the adults. Nugget, of course, was super social and loved having people there to play with and show off for. Zita was the most social we've seen her in months. It was such a joy to have all four of us involved in "hosting" the party. Already thinking ahead to next year's 9th Annual Oscar Party and preparing for 2013's 10th (big things planned, big things). Hope to see you all there!
