December happenings

****Considering I started this post in early December, it is time to get caught up and post this bad boy!

The calendar flipped and now it is December!  My most favorite time of the year!
Right after Thanksgiving we decked our halls and brought out allll the decorations.
I love how festive everything looks.  What better way to kick off the Christmas season than with a little bubbly?!  #popclinkfizz
We also had our neighbors over for what is turning out to be an annual event--making goodies to share with our other neighbors as a way to show them honor and celebrate the season.
Another tradition that we love is having hot pot with our good friends, right before Christmas.  It is a wonderful way to slow down, catch up and enjoy the season.
There is always sooo much food, but we manage to put a pretty good dent in it!  
This year, we combined it with white elephant gifts.  
 Someone wanted this lovely shirt and so took it...!
 As J always says, "You can never have too many buckets..."
 Mei Mei sums up how our family feels about hot pot!
There was cookie baking, decorating, and of course, LOTS of eating ;)
 She definitely went with the "more icing is better" concept this year, but boy, were they tasty!
Someone also went and turned 10, but I'm going to save that for another post, because this one has gotten ridiculously long!
