Annual Christmas Party

Tuesday, December 28, 2010

Since 2007 (when I moved back to Meridian from Jackson), I have hosted a Christmas party at my house.  And this year was no different.  Back in November we decided on a date that would work with everyone and it turned out to be the Monday before Christmas.  

I've been off work since December 8th and have been able to bake, clean and get things ready for that day.  We decided on finger foods this year which worked perfectly!  Everyone brought a dish and we had everything from shrimp and crab dip, chicken nuggets, sausage balls, dips and SWEETS!  Boy oh boy did we have sweets!  I made homemade fudge, chocolate covered pretzels, my homemade chocolate chip and peanut butter chip cookies and SO much more!!  And our sweet friend Elizabeth made her wonderful chocolate chip pound cake.  (No worries, I'm getting the recipe soon and will be sharing with you.)

After everyone stuffed their faces, twice, we all sat around and enjoyed laughing and catching up as it was our last party of 2010 together.  Of course, during that time, we planned three parties in 2011!!!  Hey, what can I say, we LOVE to have fun!!  Before everyone left, each couple got a "GO DAWGS" ornament from Terry and me!  (I hate we never broke out the camera!  This is the first year of no incriminating photos!!)

We are so blessed with the wonderful friends we have in our life and enjoyed spending time with them a few days before Christmas!  Who knew we could fit all 16 of us in the living room at one time!!  

Can't wait for our 2011 parties!!
