It's just another Messick Family Tradition. For almost 15 years now, the Messick, Hawkins, Koch, Roche, and Goettel Families have been getting together every Christmas for our Annual Christmas Party.
We usually begin the night with a visit to Ages, a local retirement home, to sing Christmas carols to the residents. It's so fun to see the excitment on their faces as they sing-a-long to the familiar songs.
Next, it's off to the Roche home, or whoever is hosting that year, and enjoy a delicious potluck style dinner and enough sweets to give even Buddy The Elf a tummy ache til New Years.
This year was extra special cuz Parker and Jessica Wells brought their brand new baby Sienna. It was my first time meeting this little cutie and I just fell in love with her perfect little everything. Isn't it cute how she's just staring at me. I think she loves me!
And finally we end the evening with a little celebration to Jesus. The famous Laurie Roche always makes a birthday cake and leads us in "Happy Birthday Jesus." My poor roommates are so embarrassed I'm even posting this video, but I think it's funny and kinda sweet. Hope you don't find it too sacreligious. We only mean it in the best way, even though my mother is dying of laughter when I pan her way. Enjoy!
