My first official event to photograph was Rick's Christmas party. It was a lot of fun. We had a girl at our table named Heather who giggled through the dinner, especially when there was an announcement about the dancing about to begin. She had a boyfriend at another table and she couldn't contain her excitement.
As for Rick, his big excitement was sitting beside Barbara because the food just kept on coming! Even when Barabra finally announced that the food was gone he reached out his hand and grabbed a handful of whatever he could find and stuck it in. Man, that boy is the fastest grabber in the west! Kudos to Barabra for being quick witted and grabbing back the honking slab of meat that just happened to have a teeny corner sticking out of Rick's mouth. Rick would have been chewing that all night and probably the next day!
