~ TRADITIONS ~

New Tradition:

This is Mia and Meggie's first Christmas home with their families; and of course their mommies are thrilled and excited to celebrate all the wonders of the season with them! So, we decided to start a new traditions with the girls; we went out to breakfast Saturday, and the girls exchanged Christmas gifts.


They were a hit at the bagel cafe; and we had a lot of questions to answer: are they sisters? How old are they? They're from China, right? Of course, we tried for a decent picture (or Auntie Michelle did, I realized I forgot my camera card!!)


What a sweet, fun morning ~ thanks Meggie and mommy!



















OLD TRADITION:


I'm sure you know about my 3 best girlfriends by now (Barbara, Debbie & Michelle) ~ we've been friends 26+ years now. We have our annual holiday party, rotating houses and this year I had the honor of hosting!


We always make too much food and always enjoy each others company ~ we look forward to this night and are never disappointed with its outcome!















The girls + Max!

I can't believe another year has passed Jo. This year was extra special since we have a new little addition to add to our tradition!

It was so nice, and a lot of fun as always. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year ahead! I can't wait to enjoy more celebrations with such wonderful friends who are so close to my heart.

Love, Aunt M. :)
