Every year for about 14 years or so we have been getting together with some dear friends of ours and their families. We celebrate Christmas by getting together some time in December. Our traditional menu, which the kids wouldn't even let us change this year, consist of taco salad, hot wings, and some type of dessert. This year we cut out exchanging gifts and just enjoyed the time together. We always watch the Christmas Vacation movie. Each year we laugh and laugh even though we have seen it so many times. We have even thought to change the movie but no go there either. Why mess with a good thing right. Well this year was no exception. It was a good thing. No a great thing. Now that the kids have gotten older and one is even married it's harder to get everyone there. We were missing one and had one leave early. Michala slept through picture time.
