Oscar Night!!

We celebrated the Oscars at the Clubhouse in our neighborhood last night. We had reserved it so that we didn't have to stress about filling our hosue to the brim to invite everyone we wanted to. It was such a good plan. So much easier to relax.

Me & Ben

Nick & Korianne

Emily & Jenny

Vanessa & Kevin

Julie & her daughter

Tanner & Reagan (Korianne's daughter)

That wasn't everyone, obviously, but they're the best pictures. . .

I was a bit surprised at the winners. And when I say a bit, I mean that when I guessed, only got 7 right out of 24 categories. Jenny was our big winner with 14 right, Ben & Kevin each got 13. The rest of us were pretty pitiful. I am becoming more and more convinced that I don't even need to watch the movies. It doesn't help me. . . .
