My hubby and his two roomies started it 4 years ago when they lived at our house and we have carried it on since we have been married. It is a great night filled with food, games, relaxation and of course great friends! Each year it seems to grow and this year we had around 34 of our friends come and join in on the fun. Everyone brings a side dish of some sort and Todd makes his wonderful turkeys each year.
This year was a fun year and it seems to just get better each year. With it supposed to have rained that day, we decided to do most of the setup inside. Normally we set it up in our backyard considering that we don't have the biggest house for an indoor party, but it was really nice inside and super cozy! And of course, the rain didn't amount to much...oh well, you can never be too prepared..right?
We had soooo much yummy food from tri-tip (ahh-mazing! Thanks Greg!) to mac-n-cheese to an amazing queso dip made on a dutch oven in our fire pit! It is always fun to see what people come up with to bring.
Each year we walk away with so many great memories and realize what great friends we have. Each one of them holds a special place in my heart and I am so thankful to have friends to be able to do such fun things with and such a tight-knit group to go to. Our friends are like a big family...we may not all see each other regularly, but when we do we can always be guaranteed a good time with great memories. I love you all!
