Christmas with Friends...

This year we hosted the "Friends Christmas Party" as we call it.  This is just where we get together with our closest friends so that the kids can play together, make a craft or two, and exchange gifts.  Sadly the Mastin kids were sick so they weren't able to come (neither was Lyndi) but Randy came for a while.  Jacob was also sick so Jason stayed home with him while Riley and Ann came.  Brent and Ashley Shannon and their kids were there as well as Ross and Lucy Griffith and Carson and Michael and Wendie DeHart were there with their two kids.  Craig picked up a bunch of pizzas and we also had the normal appetizers and dips and snacks and of course desserts.  The kids made two crafts--a pine cone Christmas tree and a snowman ornament.  After crafts, the kids were READY to open their gifts from each other!  Addi got a Minnie Mouse sippy cup and some Minnie Mouse dishes for her new kitchen.  Austin got some cologne from Aeropostale and a gift card from there!

It was so nice to spend a relaxed time with friends--especially at such a busy time of year.

We will miss the DeHarts as they start their new adventure in North Carolina. 

We are very blessed with such amazing friends!

  1. I really wish the DeHarts were going to be close to us, but even though they'll be in NC it isn't close to Charlotte =(. Glad y'all got to hang out before they moved though. Maybe on y'alls annual beach trip it'll work out to stop through to visit them.
