Holiday Party time!

I love traditions.

One of the most awesome things about growing up (that's what we're doing here...I know it's hard to tell) is starting new traditions. Many of our friends are newlyweds, getting married, settling down together, and having families which means that they're starting their own traditions. It's all very grown up and exciting.

Anyways, this year is the first year that our friends Kari and Mike from Jogging with Fiction hosted a Holiday Yankee Swam party. And let me tell you, it was a BLAST!

The hosts
There was delicious food

Appetizers
No worries, I'll post the recipes for these guys later.  Do you love my 2-tier tray?  It's from Crate & Barrel.

Amazing Cupcakes
A professional made these.  Sorry, no recipe for this one.

There were also amazing lasagnas (meat and meatless!), mini pizzas, cookies, and delicious drinks.  I didn't get any photos.

Jon lovin' on Bungee
I was in the kitchen when I heard Jon's cooing voice say, "Hello sweetheart.  How are you?"  Then I realized that he was talking to Kari's dog.

Can you tell we're both bloggers?
Kari and I tried to take lots of pics, but were yelled at for excessive flash.  All the more reason that I need a new flash for Christmas. 

Pregnant ladies
And, as I mentioned, many of us are taking the next steps in our lives...aka here is the corner for the preggers.  If you can't tell, I'm ready to pop.  Our friend Shannon is due in the Spring.

The Yankee Swap turned rather rowdy with stolen gifts and peer pressure, but in the end my husband got 2 Nerf guns (thanks a LOT, Mike) and proceeded to shoot everything in sight from the Christmas tree ornaments to their wedding photos to other people's butts.  Then all the other boys joined in on the fun.  We're a really mature bunch.  Did I mention we were growing up?

  3. A Nerf gun is one of those things that I think would be so much fun to have, but I would never buy for myself. Officially jealous of your husband!
