My family has a great tradition that we just started in 2008. We have a progressive dinner the first weekend of December. It really started out as a way to get our husbands to finish up the Christmas decorations early (don't tell them), but it also gives us a chance to go to each others homes and see each others decorations. This year everyone came to our soup for soup/appetizers, Chris & Gina's house for the main course and Rob & Brande's house for dessert. The kids of course had a blast! We ended it by singing Christmas carols. It is so nice to have so many musicians in the family. Brent, Chris and Dad on the guitars and Rob on the drums.
