Annual Christmas Party

This weekend was another whirlwind for us.  Saturday started off with a last minute breakfast with work friends before heading to the school for the annual Alumni Basketball Game.  

I got back around 1 p.m. and had a lot to do to get the house ready for our holiday party with friends! 
Vacuum, mop, laundry, clean the bathroom.... omg... I was exhausted.  I finally sat down around 5 p.m. and the thought of entertaining friends seemed impossible.  Carrying a child is hard work!!

I quickly threw on a tacky sweater, embraced the exhaustion and loved every minute of seeing our friends! The party was smaller this year than last, but D.J., my little elf, had a great fire going and we had lots of delicious food to snack on.

It's crazy how fast our friends have all grown up - houses, babies, boyfriends and more! We are so fortunate to have friends that have been a part of our lives for such a long time.

Stryker even had his tacky sweater on.  He wasn't so sure about Julie taking up a spot on his bed!

The girls around the tree.  So good to see all these lovely faces and missed the ones that couldn't make it this year!

And the boys! So glad everyone was able to enjoy the party!

Sunday we just took it easy and napped during the entire football game! Only 4 more days till Santa will be visiting! I hope everyone is on the nice list this year :)


  1. That looks like so much fun!! Happy Holidays!

  2. So fun - gotta love a good tacky sweater :)! xx
