Dunder Mifflin, this is Pam. How can I help you?

Been missing "The Office"?


We had.


Until last Friday...


Upon receiving this invitation, all your favorite characters came to the Albrechts to celebrate the New Year "Mormon-style".


Pam came:



And, Michael, despite being grouchy from his George Foreman grill incident ("I like the smell of bacon in the morning. Sue me.")


Karen and Andy came together. (He'd serenaded her after her makeover with Phyllis and she'd loved it.)



Jim...and Pam, again.




And Kelly thought, like, cousin Mose was the cutest thing eh-ver.


Oh wait...Jim and Pam came again. That girl really likes to make an entrance.


We even got Stanley (with his crossword puzzle) and Angela to come (even though her party-planning committee hadn't planned this one).


We were a little disappointed that Dwight didn't show. We found out later that he was mad, because Jim had done this again:



After some eating, some Office quizzes (Jim #1 was unbeatable...even with all that shoulder shrugging), and some fierce singing competition (we knew Andy could sing, but Pam #3?)...the stars were ready to return home.


*Sigh*


That'll have to tide you over until the writer's strike is over. We appreciate them crossing the picket lines for us. Go WGA.

SOOOOOOOO FUNNNNY!!!! My husband just snorted with laughter and I almost wet my pants. Oh I wish we'd been invited and lived closer--I really think Dan and Ryan would get along (this based upon the love of the smell of bacon incident and the barf training video). Dan says had we come, he'd have been Bob Vance, and I'm thinking I would have come as Jan (because of "the twins") or as a rabid and hammered Meredith in a pelvis cast. This is awesome!

HAHA HA HAHA HA HA HA !!! I cannot stop laughing! I've said it before, but you live in the BEST neighborhood EVER! I love The Office, but now I've had a little taste of it so I can wait until the writers strike is over.

Well Done, Jessica. Well done.

And I hope that I would have been invited if I lived closer. I think I would have tried to be Merideth.

HOLY CRAP!!!! You guys look more like the cast than the CAST does! I LOVE Stanley! That is so funny! And complete with crossword! hahahahahahahaha

This post made my day.

Meg said...

How fun is that! I wish I even knew people cool enough to have an Office party! I love that show.

The writer's strike is killing us...how will we be able to laugh without it?

What else did you do other than have green jello with whatever you put in it....was that a stapler?

Anyway, way cool!

Lauren said...

Talk about attending the ULTIMATE office party!!!!

Such a splendid post.

This post was a true testament to your beauty, because you even look beautiful in Pam's slouchy attire.

I have to confess...as soon as I saw this post I called my Sister, Stephanie so she could enjoy it...she is truly suffering due to the writer's strike. She could barely contain her glee at seeing the stapler in the jello picture.

Pineapple Princess said...

I reaaaallllllly miss that show! Thanks for some office humor to tide me over. That was quite amazing. Loved the stapler in the jello.

Lorena said...

NO FAIR!!!

Don't you think I would make a great Kelly?

Carie said...

HILARIOUS! I am conflicted. Do I:

1. Send everyone I know this link so they too can enjoy the most clever party of the century?

or

2. Don't tell a soul and plan the exact same party so everyone thinks it's MY idea?

Kristin said...

So you are the best Pam by far!!!! I love this idea, sound like so much fun.

Brown Sugar said...

I cant believe that no one came as Creed! www.creedthoughts.gov/creed

Bridget said...

That is so funny!! I had yet to hear of anyone doing an Office party. That is awesome. Truly one of the best shows ever. I really would have liked to see a Dwight though. But then again, that might be blasphemous.

Denae said...

ok that looks so fun! I love dress up parties and I love the office! How clever of your friends. I need to copy them.

The Hansen Clan said...

Do we know how to party or what? I just ate the last cheesecake chocolate... you should have taken some with you and saved me from myself :)

Ellie said...

I look just like Jan Levenson- Gould in real life. FYI.

Ilene said...

LOVE Kelly (and Jessica as Kelly)

Kelly: "Who's Bob Hope?"
Michael: "A Comedian."
Kelly: "Oh! Like Amanda Bynes!"

I can't get enough of her. Fun party! I was blogging at midnight... geepers, I am worse than Angela and her cats.

gab said...

You look adorable! What a fun party...

Holly said...

Thanks for the treat! I've been having severe Office withdrawals. You and your fun neighbors have helped bridge the gap!

Penny said...

You all look so cute!! Funny post!

Kirsten said...

Great party! I totally miss the office. I want someone to throw an office party and invite me.

Karen said...

That's so fun! I wanted to come,too. I love the post Phyllis makeover, and 'Stanley' was fabulous! Where was Toby? I guess Michael wouldn't let him come?

I'm having withdrawls too. In-fact, I just got off the treadmill where I was watching my new Season 1 DVD to help me pass the time. It was the healthcare episode. OH, gotta go, I'm suffering from spontaneous dento-hydroplosion!

Paige said...

That jello takes the cake. You are freakin' hilarious.

rubberbandgirl said...

Huh...I must be the only one not watching.
Looks like fun! The photos and 'costumes' are hilarious.

TexasTwinsTwice said...

This is HILARIOUS. I'm stealing this idea BIG TIME! Thanks for the awesome post! =)

Caroline said...

That's the best party ever. And I'm glad Angela decided to come even if it wasn't sponsored by her own committee....

marta said...

i love this idea! i love how the pam's knew just the right pose. i am so doing this. and love the jello. this is a riot.

Melinda said...

I have spent all day thinking what I would do if I had my own Office party...the idea is very tempting. Of course mine would have to be a "lunch(launch)" party! Such fun!!

Auzigirl said...

That is funny. We just Netflix season 2. Love it.!!!!

bloggingchristy said...

You guys seriously have the coolest lives of anyone I know with 4 kids!

Jill said...

I am having major withdrawals from the show...it stinks big time.
