Christmas Party

Every year, we get together with a group of friends for a Christmas party. It has really turned into a fun tradition that we all look forward to.

We had our annual party last night. There was plenty of food to snack on...nachos and cheese, chips, nuts, a hot chocolate bar, punch, pizza, salad. Our host, Amber, always does a great job with the food! The kids had their gift exchange, and were thrilled with their little presents. Amber had a foam photo frame kit for them to do, but they were too busy playing! When we left, each kid got a goody bag full of candy. As usual, fun was had by all!

It's hard to believe how much the kids have grown since we started this tradition. Baby Parker is new to the group-it's his first Christmas! Two of the kids that usually attend were unable to, because one was sick. We missed you, Gary, Tracy, Dom, and Logan!!! Next year, this group will be a lot bigger, with 2 new babies! We can't wait!

  8. We were bummed to miss it! I am so ocd about germs that I didn't want to chance Dom being a carrier eventhough he wasn't the sick one. Boy was he unhappy with me yesterday. Next year is going to be a blast with 10 kids! 2011 is going to be a baby boom year for our group :)

  9. Love it! We are having a friends' Christmas party at our house tomorrow for the first time. The only kids are my girls, my friend's one-year-old, and another friend's newborn... I'm looking forward to taking a picture of them together and seeing how they grow and kids get added to the mix every year. I love the goody bag and craft idea for them, we may have to do that too!
