Zach and I decided that we needed to have a CHRISTMAS PARTY this year with some of our best HIGH SCHOOL FRIENDS, so that's exactly what we did. It was SOOO much FUN making all the food, finding tacky Christmas clothes, and getting everything ready. We got rave reviews, and decided to make it another TRADITION of ours...We already can't wait for the party next year!!

This time of year seems to have lots of fun TRADITIONS that go along with it. Ever since I was about 4 years old, my family has had a fun tradition of going up into the mountains and cutting down our CHRISTMAS TREE. We have a great group of about 8 families that we share this tradition with. Over Thanksgiving weekend we go up, cut our own christmas trees, and have a fun cookout in the snow. Zach and I decided that this is one tradition that we want to carry on with our own FAMILY. This was our second year cutting down our own tree, and I must say we got a GOOD one!! 

Lucy, My Sister Elsha and I enjoying the sunshine...It was such a BEAUTIFUL day this year!!
