A Progressive Christmas

We are always out of town for Christmas but I'm not sure how long that will be able to last as our family begins to grown. So we decided to try something a little different this year. We had a progressive dinner with my family which turned out to be a lot of fun. That way we shared in the work and were able to enjoy each others Christmas decorations a bit more!
The Russells kicked it off with their yummy salad!
Not the best family pictures but wanted to include everyone!
My parents house was next.....always a masterpiece!
Then on to our house for the last course and presents. We forgot to take a picture of the real deal, as it was so good it was quickly eaten. But Beach definitely redeemed himself from last year's cheesecake (where he forgot to add the sugar - not quite the same!).
Zoe enjoyed helping to open presents this year...
and even got a moving rocking horse from her grandparents (which she calls a dragon for some odd reason). I'm not sure who was more excited....her or Poppy!
They liked our gifts to them as well!
Beach got worn out and fell asleep....all that work on the cheesecake finally caught up with him.
The "Beach sleeping pose"
Zoe outlasted him though! Fun times had by all...may have to do this every year!
