Christmas Comes This Time Each Year

My mom had a Christmas Party on the 23rd. Jenny and I wore the same brown jacket. How embarrassing. (Sorry mom, I didn't get any pics of you! Love you!)BINGO seemed to be a theme with the parties we went to this year. Here are my cousin Paul's girls. We put them in charge of calling (or yelling) the numbers. I don't think Emily had a voice the next day. My winning BINGO card (actually, it's a reenactment, I got a little excited.) My nephews Lee and Bridger jamming out to Guitar Hero. Alex, adorable in blue.The next night was Christmas Eve. We went to my mom's again and made our version of gingerbread houses. We LOVE Legos. Christmas morning we visited Collin's parents for breakfast. Yummy!Marley, chewing her Christmas present from Grandma and Grandpa P.Next was a trip to my Grandparents house. Later that day we headed out to the Gateway and saw Marley and Me. What a tear jerker. I sobbed. It didn't help that my dog is named Marley...Then, in true Christmas Story spirit, we stopped at the Chinese Gourmet for Christmas dinner. Seriously, we had visited everyone quick and fast in the morning so we would miss driving in the storm (which ended up not coming until HOURS later). It may sound funny, but going to the Chinese Gourmet for Christmas dinner might end up being one of the best Christmas dinners ever.They even had a tree!My fortune cookie was very vague. Unless it knows something I don't.
(*Good things come in small packages. One is coming to you).
The day after Christmas was dinner with friends.My friend Kate got ENGAGED!!! Not to this guy; this is her future father-in-law, Craig. The guy she is engaged to is the guy in the grey long sleeved shirt. (From left to right, Laura, Chris, Josh, Emilie, Joy's Chris, and Joy)Oh, and we put down a deposit on Lucy. She is a German Shorthair. So we we will have 3 dogs. The answer to the question you're asking is "yes, we are crazy." We get her the first week of February.
