We hosted dinner at our house on Christmas Eve and everyone pitched in to help. Josh and Erik started making sushi at 3:00, and when the Henrys arrived around 5:00 Kenton took on frying up the tempura. I made orange chicken and yakisoba noodles, and my mom brought egg rolls. It all tasted great and we ate as much as we could--and still had leftovers.
The sushi & tempura chefs in action. It was quite a production!

The kids played upstairs most of the time!

We all got little gifts from the Hickman family (relatives in CA): handmade earrings for the girls and Starbucks gift cards for the guys. (:
