Christmas Dinner Party

Evan and I decided to throw a dinner party for the holidays, something I've been wanting to do for awhile now. With college completed, I figured this would be a perfect time to start the tradition.  We invited some of our dear friends: Evan & Kasey, Kenny & Jamile, and Daniel & Leilani. All of these great guys served in Brazil with Evan and the girls just all happen to be amazing....so we had to be friends!
Evan and I made dinner and Evan and Kasey (who came from California for Christmas) helped us set up. Holly and Phil agreed to watch Vienna for the evening which was so great of them. 
It was fun to get together for dinner, games and a little Christmas spirit. 

 Nana was so sweet to let me borrow her beautiful Country Rose china set. There is nothing like a beautifully set table. Thanks for helping set up Kasey! She is an expert event planner!
