This event, which has long since outgrown its original venue, is a great way to bring the group and the community together. I would guess there were at least three times as many guests (near 300) as when we last attended in 2014.
Christina does an amazing job of getting everyone involved and decorating the space on a limited budget. And she manages to look amazing, too. All while taking care of a newborn, a very active 5 year old and a 3 year old with special needs and a complex medical history. We are so grateful for her contribution to the group, to our family and to the amazing little people she is raising up.
A F.R.I.E.N.D.S. gathering is often like a family reunion.
The kids enjoy catching up with their friends and very much enjoyed dancing the evening away.
Allen and I were catching up with friends and missed Parker and Carmella dancing. When I saw this photo it was one enormous AWWWW!
With a little help from his siblings, Addison had the florist make this corsage for his friend. Tiny, tiny, tiny... with lots of bling were the instructions. So cute.
And was he surprised when she presented him with the most adorable, also tiny... tiny... tiny... boutonniere.
It has been common knowledge since they were pretty much born that these two must be destined for each other. And how can anyone possibly argue with that kind of cuteness???
