Playing Catchup - January 2010

January 2: Justin & Steph's Open House: This was held at our home, which was a little stressful, but we were so pleased with how everything turned out. Since it was Christmastime, I chose to keep the Christmas theme. We had a huge turnout of friends and family to celebrate with Justin and Steph.

Some of you already know that one of my favorite things was the photo tree we did. I purchased a new tree, and Caitlin helped me pick out all the new decorations, but it was Caitlin and my neice, Christianne, who did the actual tedious decorating of the tree. Pictures just don't do it justice - it really was beautiful!! I liked it so well, I will most likely keep the photo theme and put family photos on the tree for next Christmas.

We had a great turnout, and there were people everywhere, from the kitchen........

There are just too many names to mention, but thank you again to ALL of you who did so much to help make the evening so wonderful!

LOVE the photo tree idea! Congrats to them both! I'm so glad you got to do something with my folks before I stole them away for the season. And hooray for the new grandbaby, too!

I love the photo tree idea! IT'S BEAUTIFUL!!! I wish we were closer and could have been there. It seems like they're a great couple, and she would be a lot of fun to hang out with!!!
