Holiday Greetings from Siegel & Strain Architects

This year, in addition to dinner and drinks, our Party Committee hosted the First Annual Holiday Cookie Decorating Competition. It was the perfect event for the company culture that exists at our firm: we love design and we love baked goods. The competition was tough, since some very talented spouses and kids also got in on the action. The winners were:

Most Tectonic: Seth
Most Festive: Sevan
Best Parti: Colin
Best Use of Color: Jill
Best in Show: Ray










'Twas three weeks before New Year's
And all through the house,
All the creatures were stirring
Maybe even a mouse.

The table was set with candles and care
With hopes that the food soon would be there.
The children were busy with games, toy trains and such,
While Colin set up cookies and decorating stuff.

With families arriving all decked out with style,
We settled ourselves around drinks for a while.
A banquet was laid with thought and with care,
We wined and dined until our plates were bare.

After a time there arose such a clatter,
Parents jumped up to see what was the matter.
Ollie and Gray had crashed their trains--what a sight!
Then popped the balloons with so much delight!

Now on to the kitchen where the cookies were laid.
With icing, sugary sparkles, the best would be made.
Now Festive! Tectonic! Parti! Colorful! Best in Show! too...
Visions of Sevan, Seth, Colin, Jill and Ray were all on view!

The cleanup was swift with all hands on deck.
Tamales were gone, salad and salmon, not a speck.
We all bundled up and drove out of sight,
Happy Holidays to all and to all a good night!
