We invited our group - Dr. McVet and Rick were just an engaged couple at that point, Quin and Mac weren't engaged at all (didn't even know yet that Mac was thinking about proposing), our friend Tobey was dating someone he's no longer dating. Mr. Lock and I were just friends.
We all gathered at Mr. Lock's place, and it was a great party. We made fondue for dessert, for the first time with our group, and a tradition was essentially born.

I love having these kinds of traditions with our best friends. Dr. McVet and Rick are now married, Quin and Mac are engaged, Mr. Lock and I are dating, and Tobey is currently single but certainly gets out there so who knows what next year will hold for him. My family has an annual Christmas gathering the Saturday before Christmas, I'm loving the concept of us having one the Saturday before that every year with this Sitcom-like family we've grown into over the past 8 years. We also do New Years Eve together without fail, a tradition I'll write more about come New Years Eve this year.
34 years from now I hope we're still enjoying Christmas Fondue every December, and I am so looking forward to seeing what the next 34 years will have in store for us all.
