Progressive Dinner

Our Street has had an annual Progressive Dinner for the past several year...and this was the first year we were able to make it!! we all started at our house with a simple appetizer and a white elephant gift exchange...hence all the random gift people have and or are wearing! then we moved on to 5 different houses including an other appetizer, salad, soup, main course and DESSERT!!

here we are progressing to the next house....

such a fun night with neighbors and friends!
