Last night was the black belt Christmas party for Emily’s karate school.  It was at the clubhouse of Sensei Steve’s apartment complex.  The black belts all chipped in and got Sensei Steve an XBox 360!  He was floored and immediatly plugged it in (of course).  Merry Christmas everyone!

Christmas Party

Tag: Friends,Fun,HolidaysPaul C. @ 11:33 pm

Saturday night was the Christmas Party at the Drawbridge Inn.  We had a great time – really good food this year, Jaime drove down from Pittsburgh and Molly and Andy showed up too.  The highlight of the night was a Kareoke contest (The Car-Part Idol Show) where the winner would be awarded a $100 gift card to Best Buy!  After much nagging encouragement from the group at my table, and Emily submitting my entry for me, I was 3rd to perform my rendition of Ice Ice Baby.   My performance was highlighted by the finale – I did the worm across the floor :)  I got two 10’s and one 7 from the judges – the highest score of the night.  The finals were between myself and Patty.  The original plan for the finals had each contestant performing the other finalists song – so Patty would have had to do Ice Ice Baby and I was going to have to sing some country song (something about a County?  Can’t recall).  However, Jeff Schroder stepped up and mandated an executive order to allow the finalists to perform a song of their choosing.  Sounded like a good idea to me – because while they were cueing up the song for me to sing, I had already performed part of Patty’s song, part of a Garth Brooks song, and one other!
I closed my performance with my all time favorite song for kareoke – Just a Giggalo!  I had some dance steps (can you really call it that?) and a lot of liquid courage in my veins, but I put on a performance that would have made David Lee Roth proud!  I think my final scores for that round were a 10, 10, 8.  So,yes…I won 🙂

After the party ended at midnight, we went down to the Drawbridge’s night club, The Crossbow (which actually has a sign that says “Ft. Mitchell’s Number One Nightclub” or something like that!) and hung out with the work crew down there.  That place is a riot though – its seems to be “the place” for the 40+ crowd to play hookup with people half their age ;)  I was taking pictures of coworkers and was actually told by a bounce that we were not allowed to take them.  Guess the married guys don’t want their wives to see their pictures popup on some website.

We’ll get the photos online tomorrow.

Happy Halloween!

We had a great Halloween; it was our first one in our new house! We had a lot more kids than we thought, considering it’s a brand new neighborhood. Meg sat on Paul’s lap most of the time, greeting the princesses and goblins and vampires that walked up to the house. They all wanted to pet the cute puppy!

She got a Halloween hedgehog (her favorite squeaky toy) that she quickly disemboweled and a new pink argyle sweater to keep her warm this winter. Check her out:
