An Elvis-tastic Christmas Party...

Tonight we went out to the KMS Christmas Party! I've been with KMS nearly 5 years, and I never thought I'd experience a Christmas party quite like tonight.

It was at the Olympic Fairmount which is a fancy schmancy 5 star Hotel in downtown Seattle.

This year was special because Sandy, who is our former Vice President of Advisory and Annuities is retiring after nearly 40 years with KMS. Her Kids surprised her by attending the events, and then our CEO surprised her with a very special guest...


Sandy is a HUGE Elvis fan, and so it was only fitting to be serenaded by him. He worked the room, and Sandy was having the time of her life. Then, he started singing to the other ladies in the room. Starting with me. I'm not sure if anyone got a picture of Elvis singing to me, but I sure hope so! I have the scarf to prove it, none the less - He sang "Teddy Bear" to/with me, which was one of the few Elvis songs I actually know the words to!

The Hamby's Cutting a Rug!
Amber and her boy Robert!
I was thrilled to see the fancy footwork of my co-workers, there's nothing like seeing CEO's boogie the night away.

Elvis continued to serenade the ladies throughout the night... this is my boss Julie, who turned as red as Rudolph's nose every time he came near her... he was a little relentless with her.
Eric was looking all sorts of snazzy, so he landed himself in a lot of the pictures... I'm so glad!

Here he is with Meg's husband Keaka.

And a fuzzy one of us in front of the Christmas Tree.

And Meg and I being all sassy with our Elvis scarfs!

Eric with Troy and Lesley Heerwagen of This Blog's Fame....

Meg, Sandy and myself and our fancy Elvis scarfs!

Megan and Amanda with Eric, you'll remember these lovely faces from this post...

Megan's one of our newer additions to KMS... we'll keep her!

We had such a wonderful night, fantastic food, great co-workers, and lots of love in that room!

Oh Jeffy...

We were so tired, and so ready for bed... but not before I got my post up... of course!

Thanks for the wonderful employment KMS... and thanks for the wonderful night!
