Annual Trip to Patti's

Darrin & I went with a group of friends to Patti's for dinner last night.  This is our third year to go (2011 & 2012).  It kind of started as a neighbor thing...and even though we moved, they still let us go :)  The girls rode in my car, and the guys rode in Josh's car.  The guys settled for a parking spot far from the door.  We decided to try to get a little closer and ended up parking right next to the front door....for the second year in a row, I might add.  Then, we were seated at the exact same table as last year.  Groundhog Day, anyone?

After dinner, the guys humored us for two pictures.  Two!  Thankfully the stranger that took this one did a good job. 

The guys headed straight for the car b/c it was freezing.  We took a couple girls pics & we were done. It was a fun night with good friends.

Christmas Wrap Up

We've had a solid week of Christmas parties & get togethers.  Darrin & I both had the entire week off from work.  I haven't taken the week of Christmas off in several years, and I must say, it was really nice.  We've stayed up late, watched TV, played games, ate...a lot, been busy, and just hung out.  It's going to be a rude awakening tomorrow morning when my alarm clock goes off, but I'm ready to get back into a routine.

For the most part, I'm going to let the pictures speak for's been a great Christmas.

Nice to see the cousins "socializing"...

Miles would not let us build a fire on Christmas Eve b/c he was afraid Santa couldn't come down the chimney.  His note says, "Dear Santa, Merry Christmas. I love you. I really hope you are okay. Miles"

We were going to bake cookies for Santa, but Miles asked if we could just leave him the Oreo balls that were left over from that afternoon.  Carrots for the reindeer...

His new Chris Johnson jersey makes him "fast"...

Hope your Christmas was excellent too.
