Progressive Dinner

Jon's family has some of the coolest traditions around the Holidays.  I love being part of them!  One of the best ones, in my opinion, is the Progressive dinner.  But it only works when everyone lives in close proximity.

Basically, everyone picks a course to serve (salad, appetizer, dinner, dessert) and we all drive from house to house to look at the decorations and enjoy family and good food.  It combines my favorite things in this world - Holiday decorations, family, and good food.  I can't get enough.

One of the houses has a little farm with geese, chickens, cows, and goats.  They are so fun (although really loud).

These guys are still babies.

And here are some grown up chickens. 

This is Eli, one of Jon's cousins.  I often steal his monies.  I don't think he likes that.  I also give him wet willies.  He definitely doesn't like that.

Jon and his cousin decided to go skating in their shoes.

Which really meant that they got shoe-fulls of slush.

The end.

One of the family photos.  I love these guys.  I don't know why I didn't get a picture at every house (possibly because I was too busy eating delicious food).

Jon and his brother with Bella, attempting to take a family picture in front of the tree.

Jon's sister couldn't make it but here are the four of us in front of the tree.  4.5 really if you count Peanut.

And what kind of a photo-op would this be if Jon didn't make a face.

What are your favorite holiday traditions?


  1. growing up my mom, sister and I always made my "grammy's cookies". My sister still makes them with my nephews but I haven't made them in awhile. Every year I say I will. Maybe next year!

  2. Love this tradition! My dad's family did a progressive dinner on Christmas Eve until about three years ago. It was so nice to visit each home, see holiday decorations, and eat yummy food.

    My favorite current traditions include: new PJs from "the elves" on Christmas Eve, a new snowman decoration each year, and my mom's egg casserole on Christmas morning.
