Celebrating with friends...

We had the most delightfully warm and enjoyable dinner with our friends Mike & Amy last night. We cooked, we ate, we did dishes. We exchanged gifts. The Wilkinsons are so thoughtful and found the perfect gift for each member of our family. I can't thank them enough.

Most enjoyable to all of us was a joint gift to Matt and Zack. They gave The Dangerous Book for Boys:

At first Zack gave the "Oh it's a book, but my Mom will kill me if I don't act grateful face". Then when he and Matt started looking at it and discovered that it was a book of all the things any boy should know and then determined that it was a "secret" book for boys, well it was the best gift EVER! We all enjoyed looking through it until Zack decided that it was for boys' eyes only and hid it from anyone with ovaries. He and Matt sat up late in Zack's room reading the first chapter. We highly recommend this book to anyone with a son. It's fantastic!

Matt also enjoyed the card that Mike & Amy made him:

Overall, I had such a nice evening, and SO love Amy's creativity with picking the perfect gifts.

I'm surely lacking in that regard. That tingly Christmasy feeling has begun. I'm planning on thoroughly enjoying the next week!
