Christmas with Friends

Christmas season is a wonderful time together with friends. To celebrate the holidays whether it be over a meal, a movie, a gift exchange, a game - it doesn't matter - just being surrounded with the Christmas decor and spirit is enough to make a gathering all the more cheery.

Every year a group of us girls get together for a gift exchange. It's a wonderful time for us to come together and take a breather from our chaotic schedules and share with each other. This year B&D hosted at their home and we enjoyed a delicious brunch, followed by cocoa and cookies in front of the fire while we exchanged gifts. Followed by a new game D got for her birthday! It was a fun time. It is one of my favorite Christmas activities that I look forward to every year.

Last night we enjoyed another exciting event - and evening with Vanessa and her family. The kids played. We ate a delicious roast as prepared by Vanessa. Followed by some delicious dessert a truncated game of Cranium and then present opening. Sabria and Ace played well together and had a blast running around the house screaming in excitement. Presents were a hit for both the kids and the company shared with the adults was excellent as well.

Celebrating the season with friends is wonderful and I am blessed to have so many friends to share the season with. Today I will enjoy coffee with my good friend Stacy and her little snowflake, Haly. Looking forward to seeing them.
