Ringing in the New Year!!!!

We rang in the New Year with the closest of our friends aka our small group from church. We took a ton of time planning and working out some kinks in order to make our progressive dinner party work out. After the night ended, we all agreed that all the "stress" that went into finding sitters, planning meals, hosting, etc. was more than well worth every minute of it. If you have never done a progressive dinner party, I highly recommend it. It's a great way to break up a LOOOOONG party at ONE person's home. It provides different, fun, atmospheres. It takes the stress of of ONE person and distributes it to many. Appetizers at the Harris' Home, Dinner at the Carroll's home, and Dessert at the Bolling's home. The other friends who did NOT host contributed a dish or two. The evening was fun and filled with a TON of laughs. The only stinky thing is the way the holidays landed this year. ALL of them on SUNDAY. So we all had to get up at the crack of dawn to go to church, but it was great getting to see everyone again the next morning while we worshiped!!!! HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
