Holiday Happenings

On Monday the 7th we had our 3rd annual Girl's Night Out exchange our favorite things at Michael's on the Lake Restaurant. Katie Roylance, Amber Jenks, me, Jenica Heslop, and Bethany Jenks. We all started meeting 3 years ago as a play group at people's houses, then the park, and as a girl's night at Shari's. We try for once a month, and it doesn't always happen, but it is so fun to just get out! Before Christmas we do get to Michael's and enjoy another evening of laughter and chatting and food and we all bring something that is our favorite to give to everyone else. Rischel Law was with us at the 1st one, but other than her it has remained the same girls. I look forward to our laughter and late nights together at Shari's!
Last night we had a few people over to celebrate my dear friend, Bethany's, birthday. Now we are both 27! I remember meeting Bethany. We were both in 10th ward, her having just moved in and our Bishop sent me over there to convince them to come to church and leave her old ward behind. (She was staying behind until the New Year to finish out her calling) I was hugely pregnant and she was somewhat pregnant and I pretty much barged into her house. She moved maybe 2 years later? Across town and I was sad, but happy for her new house and then we moved to where we are now. I used to walk my screaming kids over there barefoot because she only lived a few houses down. Happy Birthday Bethany!!! I don't know what it is with me and Christmas pictures. I gotta get the picture of the Christmas jammies in front of the tree, and then the Christmas church clothes in front of the tree and then the glorified picture with Santa. I still don't have my Santa picture yet, I am hoping for the ward party, and praying it is not a bust!

love the pics. I hate when i get something in my head and it has to be done how I want it and how I see it in my head... and then it doesn't quite turn out how I planned...drives me nuts. I have had a few of those this christmas season. I think I just need to stop getting ideas and pictures in my head! (i.e. I REALLY wanted my kiddos to have matching jammies...I couldn't find anything anywhere that made them in both sizes...grrr. I finally just settled for a 12 month size for Bridger, so they could match. luckily he is a big boy and they probably won't be THAT big on him) Sadly I don't think Cambree is going to get to see santa. we are missing our ward party...and I am a little creeped out by mall santas...plus I am NOT paying money to sit on santa's lap! does that make me the grinch?

IT sounds silly, but I am in the exact same boat whn it come to jammied Christmas day. and I always end up buying the sets after Chritmas, then I get them for way chep, works for me ! I also always have to have a pictue with them sitting on Santa's lap

Ive been so behind on reading blogs. I just read this post for the first time today. Thanks for the fun little party. Isn't it funny yo think about the first time we met? All I remember is that I was really embarrassed because I was wearing my big Jamaica shirt and I wasn't wearing any makeup. Haha. Btw, I think we need to schedule our January girls night.
