Happy Birthday Jesus!

Tis the Season to....PARTY

Is there a such thing as too much partying? I think not! We've had a week of it. On Sunday night my girlfriends from highschool(gradeschool for Jenny) came over with their ever expanding families and we enjoyed our annual Christmas dinner with all the trimmings. I love having an official kid's table now - there conversations are always so interesting!
Then on Monday night the Jackson's came over for a spontaneous "grill out" night since the weather was so nice.
On Tuesday we had a Happy Birthday Jesus party with some dear friends from church. We look forward to this every year as Erin always enjoys the special craft and yummy eats. Anna rather enjoyed herself too this year!
This morning some of the ladies from our small group came over with their little ones and we had a fun playdate with a special snack.
I just love this time of year when it's so busy. I love talking to other moms about their traditions and getting new ideas. Children make Christmas so exciting! I feel so blessed to be surrounded by so many wonderful, Christian people, especially moms, that know what this time of year truly is all about!
Cassia, Elena Kay, Erin, Dylan, Grayson and Anna - friends for life!
My Best Friends - Jenny and Jeanette!

Anna and Madeline are getting to be little playmates.

MMM...Mrs. Schrodt, this is some yummy mac'n'cheese!
