Every year my college roommates and I have a Christmas dinner! Normally it is just the girls and we stay up later than normal catching up, eating amazing food, and just loving the time we get to spend together! This year, the boys and "baby" were invited . . . and instead missing the quiet girl time we used to have, I was encouraged by the way the Lord has moved in each of our lives this past year. This has truly been an amazing year for all of us. . . from raising a child to starting a new career, God has been so faithful. As I was rinsing the china after everyone had left, I was overcome with gratefulness for such incredible people in my life.
I'll share the salad and goat cheese medallion "recipe" tomorrow but it was wonderful!
What do you do with a one year old when the adults are having a nice dinner on fine china???
We always exchange little gifts and this year Abbi got the most PERFECT gift for me. . . are these not the CUTEST measuring cups! I am obsessed and have already used them! :-)

I made Caribbean Shrimp with Rice and everyone liked it! (everyone enjoying the main course was kind of a big deal because one person in the group doesn't eat red meat, one don't really like seafood, and one person is so finicky he doesn't like RANCH DRESSING! :-) So, calling all mom's of picky eaters. . . here is a good meal for you! :-)
