Christmas Parties

One of the fun things of the season is the Christmas gatherings with friends & family. We've been to one party at our Church and one at Liz's house for the Trucker's Parade. Friday I get to go to one of the local Assisted Living Centers with Sydney's Pre-School for a Christmas Party and performance by those little angels!

At Scottie Dog Quilts Creative Sewing Center I teach two drop-in classes every week. The Tuesday morning class is cohesive group of women many of whom have been in the class for 13 years or more. They often have pot luck lunches, brunches, birthday parties and more. They've had a Christmas Party for at least 10 of those years. This year it was held at the store. First off, I want to tell you these ladies can cook...boy, can they cook! None of us went hungry at this party. We had three stations....appetizers, main dishes & salads and a big table just for desserts.

We were celebrating three birthdays. Here are the three Birthday Queens: Margie, Del & Barb.
Everyone brings a gift for the exchange....we play that "stealing" game. Sydney was really excited to get to play the game this year. Here she is helping Sheila open her gift.
Here's Jan showing us that the bag the gift comes in can be a gift too...Great hat, Jan! Although I had my hands on 3 or 4 gifts, I think I went home with the best! Two jars of Jan's home canned Albacore Tuna. What a treat!
Sydney steals a gift from Del! Doesn't she look proud of herself!
Three hours flew by and we had to pose for a picture. Don't we look like we had fun!
Thanks ladies....I'm so very thankful for each and every one of you! You are a blessing to me.
