A Christmas Gathering | with theavidpen

We celebrated Christmas early on Saturday when my sister and brother-in-law came over for a little holiday ‘tapas’ party before opening presents. These are just a few of the pictures we took throughout the afternoon.

Quiche... Not Christa friendly, but everyone else was able to enjoy them.
