Advent Activity // Fancy Dress Up Dinner

One of our holiday traditions is to dress up + have a fancy dinner with family.  It all started when I was around 8 (I think) + we would always go to Folk's Folly with family friends.  The families + friends have grown + changed over the years, but the tradition stays the same.  We have a steak dinner + end the night with brandy alexanders, amaretto freezes or grasshoppers (all have to be made with ice cream, haha).  This year we went to Ruth's Chris with my mom, my brother + his family.  Now he is starting the tradition with his children :)  Sweet.
