Pod Group Christmas Party

Some how I've become way behind again on this blog.  I guess life happens, ya know?  I promise to be more dedicated this year.  That could be my New Year's resolution, even though I don't really make resolutions.  

Anyway, before Christmas Ryan & I got to attend a fun Christmas party with our pod group.  We've been fortunate enough to have gotten plugged in with a great church and a wonderful small group.  At our church they call them "pod groups".  It's been so fun getting to know new people and reconnecting with some old friends as well.  This group has been such a blessing in our lives.
 Our friends Jeremy and Melissa were gracious enough to have our group over to their home for a little Christmas party.  They had beautiful decorations.

 My friend, Kristen, and I go way back.  We grew up together at church and even went to K-State together.  Now, she's married and just had her first baby girl, Annie.  It's crazy how life changes!

This picture cracked me up because it was the men congregating in the kitchen and not the women!

Ryan in his snowflake sweater.  Classic.  I'm not sure what his hand sign means, and I'm pretty sure he doesn't either...

One of the guys (Jim) picked up my camera at some point in the night and started taking random pictures.  I thought they turned out pretty good!  He captured Matt taking a bite of delicious food while we were all playing Trivial Pursuit.  (I'm terrible at that game!)

He caught Ryan & Greg playing on their phones. 

There are no words...

Robert & Jessica

Amanda is another friend that I grew up with at church. 

Jeremy and Melissa the hosts of the party.  They pretty much dominate at Trivial Pursuit.   

It was definitely a fun and relaxing night with our good friends.  Love the holidays and all it's craziness.  :)


  1. That looks like a lot of fun. We found a church here but haven't joined a small group. We are REALLY slow in that area. And once you add kids to the mix... How is running going?

  2. Do you go to church with Carly and Ashley too?

  3. so glad to hear you have found a great community in KC. kinda jealous ;) When you have time will you send me the pic you took of LB and me at the reunion? Also I am sad we didnt get a shot together, I guess that just means you need to come visit :)


I'd love to hear from you!
