Curtis Christmas Dinner-"Happy Birthday Jesus"

Every year my mom (and dad) host the "Curtis Christmas Dinner." It's such a fun tradition with such great friends. This year didn't disappoint. The theme was "Happy Birthday Jesus." It was such a sweet dinner. 



We all grew up together...and by "we" I mean the ones with children now. Ha! The parent's have become grandparents, we have become the parent's. The crowd has grown. My mom says she is going to have to rent a place next year because we are expecting at least 4 more babies. LOL! 

Wyatt was a mess. We had to wake him for the pictures...all for the memories right!?!?
This is the picture from last year. I could probably go back and post at least the past 3-5 years. LOL! The year before this though I was on bed rest and wasn't able to attend. ;( It's fun to be able to look back at everyone.

We tried to take a picture to compare from year to year...it only took 4 tries to get a decent one...
 Take #1...
 Take #2...
 Take #3...
Take #4...;)

Last year...

We ended the evening by attending the Christmas program at church. My mom recently joined the chior ;) so we all went to cheer her on. Ha!

Another successful Curtis Christmas Dinner! We are so blessed to have such amazing family friends. I pray Mark and I can teach the importance of tradition to our children. Tradition that goes deep, tradition that involves many people...more than just our immediate family. These relationships are so dear to my heart. Memories are so vivid and make me smile from ear to ear!
