It was a cold snowy night, but thoughts of sugar plums...or was it ham and frog eye salad,
got us out of our warm, cozy homes and over to our hosts for the
December Sunday Dinner Night #2.
This is our fantastic hostess/cook/waitress/busboy/dishwasher,
and our host,
Morgan, looking quite pensive.
Many of my favorite people were there, including
Tom and Katie (and Atticus..there are no pictures of Katie without Atticus attached to her hip).
Violet, Howie, and Atticus had every piece of the train set out before the evening was over.
But the GREAT Bailey cleaned it all up for his auntie Sara.
It's hard to get the kids to notice their grandparents when there are so many fun cousins to play with. But thankfully, these two cuties took a few minutes out for a hug from their grammy.
While we were all playing, hugging, etc. Sara was cleaning and making frosting so that the munchkins could decorate these gingerbread men Sara baked earlier in the day.
Ella was first to start....when asked what the two jelly beans on the back of her gingerbread man represented, she replied, "His butt!" So imaginative!
The following are the munchkins proudly displaying their artistic efforts.
It was a sad moment, but thankfully we all knew that we would be getting together the very next night for Amy's annual Bailey Christmas party. So we finally left Sara and Morgan
to clean up the mess and get their house back in order.
Thanks, Strassers, for a wonderful evening.
We love you!
We love you!
