Here are some of my favorite things about Christmas. Our friend luncheon - Kelly and I have had the same 10 friends over for a Christmas lunch for over 20 years. Some have moved away but these 10 have been together for all that time.Note Normas crown - she is my diva friend! Below is the annual gingerbread decorating party. What fun having everyone home (except Steven who's freezing in Montana but loving missionary work).
