Three years ago we became a part of a Brown family tradition that is so much fun - a gingerbread party. But it's not the kind you think - we don't stand around making gingerbread cookies or houses - we destroy them! The Brown boys grandfather and grandmother make the most fabulously themed gingerbread house you've ever seen - I swear they get better each year and then the boys host a party for their friends to join them in destroying it. It's wild, crazy and tons of fun!

Thank you Brown family for inviting us to join in on this fun tradition! As you can tell, these friends had a blast!

And last but not least, we started the Nutcracker two years ago with our sweet friends the Solomons and Coco. Allison started the tradition with her oldest when she was two years old and they've been attending every year since. Last year we scored tickets to the Alabama Ballet's performance and asked them and Coco to join - it was such a good time! So, we continued the tradition this year, but instead chose to attend the Alabama Youth Ballet's performance and even got matching Nutcracker dresses. It was so cute and it seemed to keep the girls attention since many of the children were their age. Meme joined us, as did Allison's Mom, Mimi and Coco and her nieces - a wonderful time spent together watching a magical story unfold on stage.
