When friends and Christmas meet...

...we get the most perfect evening...
Every year we celebrate Christmas with the friends. We pretend its Christmas Day...with crackers, gammon, carols, decorations, eggnog, presents...even those horrible little plastic hats.
We are so thankful to have these people in our lives...thank you guys for another great year...
..here's to many, many, more celebrations together.

Stunning pics.

Such a great tradition - so often our friends get forgotten about over Christmas because it's all about family. I think i may just start this with our veyr good friends. xx

Hey Shayne, that's exactly why we did it, so that we get to celebrate with them. And of course we get to have two Christmas' :-)

Oh, I remember those days! The days before we had small kids, when we were going to parties with other people with no kids or kids older than four years of age. I think we are drawing closer to that phase in our life! LOL! Enjoy it while you can! Hubby and I was just impressed that we were able to attend our year end functions and get all the Christmas shopping done in time the last four years!

What a great idea! I'm too late for this year but I'm definitely doing this next year. As it is, we're having two Christmases - one with my family in PE and then one up here with D's family.
