Since pictures are WORTH a 1,000 words, I have been saving this post til we received the Professional Pictures from the party photographer!!As soon as we arrive at the Arizona Biltmore for the Big Company Christmas party, we always head over to get our pics taken as there are So many people at this event, we just want to get it over with so we can enjoy the night (missing lipstick and all sometimes)
The company was celebrating 2 big Anniversaries this year, 50 years in Business and 40 years in the state of Arizona!!!My hubby also was celebrating 2 Anniversaries this year. 30 years with the company and 25 years as a Manager!!!They always have the most awesome ice sculptors.
In the lobby, the owner came over to say Hello to my hubby!!I asked if we could get a picture!!!He said YES!!!I told him a great little quote we love to live by, "Some people DREAM about Great success and OTHERS like himself WAKE up each day and achieve Great success!!!!"
