We were given a task this past week to come up with Christmas decorations for our office doors. Everyone started working on the task. Some completed their entries into the contest earlier than others.

Charlie and I share an office. We are not overachievers so we knew we wouldn't have something done until the end of the week anyway. So we started brainstorming what we were going to do. Well to be honest it took us most of the week to decide to have the conversation. When we did we came up with a solution it really took us less than two minutes.

The struggle was for me to go home and remember to go into my garage to find my contribution to the "decorations".

We wanted something to show our stunning personalities. So of course we wanted something funny.

How Did Our Co-workers Decorate Their Doors?

I went around and checked out the competition. I mean we have to do that right? There were some great entries. I don't think anyone, though, beats our creativity. Maybe I am a little biased.

This is the office across from ours. This one was probably the first one decorated this week. Yes, he is the over achiever of the group.

I do love the theme. I do love "A Christmas Story".

Oh I definitely have to give kudos to this one too. Another one of my bosses. She is the one who came up with the door decorating contest.

Sales has time on their hands. Look at all the bows and candy canes. When I need a sugar rush I will visit his office.
