Annual Christmas Party

We may have had to be picked up by our good friends, the Sessions, in their big truck, but we made it to the annual adults only Christmas party at the Mansfield’s last night. Good food is always a part of the night, as is lots of laughter. This night delivered. Not only did we have fun together, but as the snow continued to fall it felt like we were at a mountain chalet with all our friends and a roaring fire. Absolutely glorious.

Gotta love all those men in the kitchen!

 This year’s dinner theme was Asian, and everyone brought something to prepare and share.

 Although neither of the next two pictures are great and there are definitely some bad shots a some people, I love that Mick is cracking up over something at the far end of the table in both pictures!

No matter where we are, if it's my camera, Willie still can't keep his eyes open. Do I put him to sleep?

After dinner is finished, cleaned up a little and the mixed table arrangement has settled into a girls end and a guys end for some conversation, it’s time for the gift exchange.

Greg tries to decide what to do with his gift. A new cooler!
