This year, Natalie, Vanessa, and I had a fabulous idea (if I do say so myself!) - we decided to get together for a family night to celebrate Christmas together! Vanessa volunteered to host, and we all brought gifts for the kids and food for dinner. We had a big Italian feast with spaghetti, lasagna, tortellini, garlic bread, and dessert. The kids got to play with each other and the adults got to visit and chat - it was a great relaxing Friday night! After dinner, the kids all opened their gifts from each other, and they got great toys, stickers, and coloring books from their friends. It was such a fun family night - I definitely hope we do it again!
SJ spent almost the entire party asleep in his car seat or in the Maya sling with me! What a party animal!
Lily loves babies and loved helping me when I was giving SJ his bottle!
Time to eat! The kids loved all the delicious food.
What they'd been waiting for - present time!
