Annual Christmas Dinner

This past Friday night we had our Annual Christmas Dinner with friends.  It's hard to believe this is our 5th year of doing this but I love this tradition and I think we all look forward to it during the holiday season.  This year we had dinner at Alison and Mark's house and they prepared a great meal and their home was decorated beautifully.  It was so much fun to see each other, hold each others babies, exchange gifts and celebrate the season.  The last few years we have also adopted a family from church and we each bring gifts for a member of their family which has also become a new favorite tradition.


 It's hard to believe we've grown by two babies this year!  By the way, it's a little more challenging to get a good pic now with everyone looking at the camera :)



The plaid family... Poor Charlie didn't get the memo :)


This boy got to sit at the big table!  


This little boy slept in his chair during dinner...




All the boys in the group...  


All the girls... 


Our best attempt at a picture of all the kiddos :)


And lastly, a group shot of all of us.  Not everyone is looking but I'd say we did pretty well with the self-timer!


So thankful for great friends and this fun tradition we have created!
