Happy Friday Everyone! I hope this weekend starts off a great holiday week for you and yours! Last night we had our Greensboro Family Christmas dinner! If you didn't see our Thanksgiving Feast, we have a dinner for almost every holiday; since we all go in different directions, its nice to all sit down at a table to talk, and laugh, or watch a movie together like civilized adults, not just a group of kids who met in college. The ladies have fancy beverages and the boys talk on the porch until everything is finished cooking and we take our seats at the decorated table setting.
This time Vlad made lasagna, Emma & Eric brought rolls, Lindley (sadly Nic was still resting from knee surgery and didn't dare try to make it up to my third floor apartment) made the mashed potatoes, Garrett & Jaklyn sponsored the green beans and I put together the salad and cranberry sauce. We watched The Polar Express and Charlie Brown's Christmas, ate candy canes and cupcakes, and argued over which year an old movie came out or retelling old stories.
Einstein, who has become the mascot of our family dinners, was thrilled to have the boys there! Between Derek, Coley and Garrett he never got a moment's rest and proceeded to instantly fell asleep on the TV stand once everyone had said their goodbyes. But our family dinners always seem to end to soon, but is always a perfect addition to our own holiday festivities! (Thanks Coley for the amazing photo above! It captures the night perfectly!)
Happy Holidays Everyone, From Mine to Yours!
