This weekend, Lyle and I hosted a Christmas dinner party for my Truett Covenant Group and their husbands. What started as a required small group over three years ago, has now become a cherished source of sweet community in my life.
We were able to make the get together even more festive and frilling thanks to Lyle’s mom’s Christmas china, which we are happily watching over while they finish building their new house. I love anything that makes Christmas extra… Christmas-y, so naturally, I had a blast with the table setting.
I made cupcakes again so that the girls could take their favorites home, too!
This is one of my favorite photos of us from the night. So many things have changed since we all first met in 2008. Ashley (not pictured), our original small group leader, has graduated and moved to North Carolina with her husband and their baby boy. Raquel, on the far left, has graduated and now has twin girls. Kelly (next to Raquel) and I both have our Masters of Social Work as of last May. And we will graduate this May, along with Melaina – who is pregnant (as you can see), with our Masters of Divinity. I love these girls! This picture cracks me up!
