Christmas with Friends

We have been close friends with one particular group for several years now. The past two years have been a little different as we have started to reproduce. We are four couples, four kids under 20 months, plus two buns in ovens. It is always fun when we get together, although it doesn't happen enough.

Last night we got together to have our Christmas party. The kids exchange names so they each get to open a gift. It is such a good time. It doesn't hurt that we eat good food (Thanks Chelle) and have great company. The kids do really great together considering their ages and stages. Sophie's the youngest at almost 15 months. It's mostly controlled chaos, but we do try to slow everyone down a second for some Kodak moments.

For some reason they're a little grainy, but the first is Sophie getting kisses from Jimmy; the second is Sophie, Jimmy, Will and Ava - still for a split second. Finally, all of the mamas with our babies. Erica has Jimmy and Chelle has Ava (but they're switched), then Sophie and I and Lauren and Will. It was an attempt at getting a photo of just us girls (no babies), but that doesn't work these days. It was a really good time, and the guys were there too. I promise.


  1. I'm so glad you have good friends--it just makes life easier. Of course, I know that everybody want to be your friend, LJ--you're just a good one! Love you!

  2. LOVE Sophie's tights!!

    It was so great to see you today. You have no idea. :)
