Monday again?!?! We had a great weekend with family and friends. Friday after school we traveled to Jackson. We celebrated my sister's b-day and had our annual "framily Christmas" dinner.
We got to Jackson around 2pm so we pick up Zetta and Nora from school early...it was so fun! Since we don't live in the same town surprise pick ups isn't something that gets to happen often. It is so fun to spend special time with them. The time with them and Uncle Mark and Aunt Em is priceless and so special to us. We took them to Sonic happy hour as a special treat! These 4 are so cute!
After our Sonic treats we hung out at Eesie and Poppies until everyone got there for dinner. The girls enjoyed spending time together. They are all growing so quickly!
Saturday morning we ran a few errands for my mom to help prepare for the evening festivities. The weather was AMAZING! We took advantage of the sunshine and visited a new park that was nearby.
Saturday evening was the annual Curtis Christmas dinner. (My mom found documentation of this dinner back to 2005 and displayed all the years pictures around as decoration.;)) Whitney posted on Instagram Saturday evening and said it so well..." What started as 5 couples, turned into 10 kids, and now those 10 kids are married and have 19 kids and counting!! Three generations of family friends...wow!!!"
She said it perfect...I love this night every year. I also say it every year but this picture speaks volumes. There is over 30 years of friendship here...it didn't fade with time...these people have remained together through think and thin. This is something I will treasure forever. I will not take for granted these people-because not many people can say they have these relationships. We have that "first generation" to thank for their AMAZING examples of TRUE FRIENDSHIPS.
We left Jackson late Saturday night to come back home. (We keep the road HOT!) Wyatt and Sloane had an open house at school we had to attend for next year information. Sunday was also the first day of the book fair at school. There was a spot for students to take selfies and enter to win some books from the fair. Wyatt and Sloane loved it!
We finished quickly at school so we could attend baby dedication for Mark's cousins family. They have adopted sweet little Addie into the family! The service was great and we all headed to lunch after....
Mark went golfing Sunday afternoon. The kids and I spent some time at home "unwinding" from a busy but fun weekend!
I have made my February list and I can't wait to share it tomorrow! Happy Monday everyone!
