The 2006 annual Christmas party was controversial and fun all at the same time. Richie was boycotting the gift exchange because someone thought it best not to celebrate baby Jesus’ birth with sexual gag gifts. Despite Richie’s vocal protest, we managed. We were in the Hetmer’s new home, along with high a definition Maverick game in the background. I ended up with a Wheel of Fortune video game bought by Stephen. Ryan H. was not too fond of this gift, however, I knew that someday it would be complete gold. Miranda received a Starbucks coffee mug, some toffee cookies and a new Starbucks mug. Enough with my banter, onto the pictures.

We begin the gift exchange and Ryan is hugely disappointed by the infamous Wheel of Fortune video game. Little does he know, he’ll be giving up the best gift.
Landy, Caylie and Matthew. Matthew seems unimpressed with some sort of liquor and glasses to boot.
Ashley F., overly excited about a Starbuck’s gift card.
Wow, I can’t believe Ashley F.’s luck, of all the presents she could have picked, she picked the one she wanted. What are the odds?

Courtney and Greggo enjoying something that I can’t remember right now.
