My friend Kati's b-day is in December....  and to uphold tradition we all got together for a fun b-day lunch celebration at Oscars, it was the most beautiful December day....  I was in flip flops and a short sleeve shirt....  As were the rest of the girls...  and the kids were rolling around in cute dresses and flop flops as well!!  ;)
The birthday girl....  and no it wasn't dark out...  I was just trying my "luck" at the manual settings on my camera!  ;)

The annual Ornament Party!

The Annual Christmas Party is something I look forward to every year....  It's usually the way to kickoff the holiday season....  and this year was no different!  :)
The treat/food table!  and the arrangement that Jessica made from stuff she bought on our Michael's trip...  I LOVED it...  :)  She definitly had a vision while we were at the store...  ;)  haha!
and the annual Christmas arrangement from Bobby was beautiful too!!  ;)
Carlie and Emily had fun entertaining Owen!

Jaime finally got to attend one of the infamous ornament parties....  We were so glad she got to be here this year!  :)

This picture cracks me up...  DeBran and I thought it would be fun to photograph ourselves with the Christmas arrangement!  ;)  so here we are...  posing for pics!
