Parties, Parties, Everywhere!

December is the month of date nights! Brody and I go out more in December than pretty much every other month combined.
Sunday night Brody had his staff party. Not all of the other tennis guys could make it this year so we weren't there too long, but it was still fun.

Tuesday night Scarlett had her school Christmas program. Unfortunately, Clark got sick that morning so I had to skip out on seeing my little sheep, but I'm sure she "baad" perfectly. hahaThe next night one of Brody's tennis teams hosted a party. They have a white elephant game that's always lots of fun!
Friday Scarlett had her Christmas party. Jaime and I are room moms and Jaime had the brilliant idea for us to serve happy meals. It was a huge hit for the kids and super easy cleanup!!
And finally, this past Sunday night we attended a debutante dinner for a "girl" Brody used to give tennis lessons. He couldn't get over how everyone had grown up and we're still exactly the same. haha!!
I honestly think I've forgotten to include a couple of parties, but we do still have our anniversary on the 29th to look forward to. :)

My sister is awesome!

Seriously, she is. She had been wanting to do a craft show for a while so when this relatively small show asked her to sell her things, she said yes. It was a great first show and now she has some experience under her cute little homemade belt. :)Maegan helped her set up her darling table and I came a little later to mainly just sit around and eat hor d'oeuvres. ha! I was so proud of Jaime because she not only had tons of adorable things that she somehow managed to make while taking care of a home, a husband and three kids...but she did really well and sold a lot of stuff. It was a great night!

It seems like lately I've just been lumping lots of things into one post. Considering I have mountains of laundry, projects, gifts, parties, etc going on the next couple of weeks, I really don't see things changing in the near future. Oh least I'm getting things posted. :)

Last Friday, Brody and I took the kids to see Santa. Scarlett went with her list in hand and they were both excited to see the big guy.
Saturday morning I hosted my annual brunch. I think it's been about 11 years and what started as an ornament making party with my teacher friends to help fill up my Christmas tree has turned into a morning brunch with a gift exchange and lots of catching up. Anne left before she got in our picture and Layla couldn't make it this year. But in the picture below we have 11 children between us...9 boys and just 2 sweet girls. :) It is always SO much fun to visit with these friends!
Later that night, Brody and I got a date night! One of Clark's school friends parents actually had us over and it was fun to meet some new people. Jordan and Maegan came over with Paisley to babysit and the kids had a blast with that puppy!
Sunday after church my mom treated Scarlett and me to a showing of The Nutcracker. She LOVED it, and we had a great time. I'm looking forward to the day when Jemma is big enough that she and Jaime can join us.

And then, this past Monday, Brody's brother Casey and his wife had their first baby boy. Breslin is a cutie for sure, and I think Casey is just a little bit proud. ha!
