So, We Had a Party....






We had a little group of people who work for The Mister
come with their spouses for some Christmas fun!
Fancy hors d'oeuvres, a little wine and white elephants gifts
all make for a good time, right?
I was busy and forgot to take photos of the food
so you'll have to trust me that it was yummy. haha.
We had steak and goat cheese sliders, shrimp cocktail,
a cheese ball, salad skewers, veggies & dip
 and sweet & sour meatballs.
Then for a little dessert ~ red velvet cake, lemon sugar
cookies, chocolate covered strawberries
 and chocolate peanut clusters.

The white elephant gifts are the best, though.
I had to show you what I got!  A Sculpt Your Own Boyfriend kit!
hahaha....little packs of clay, instructions and all!
I think The Mister felt threatened when I obviously 
loved it. lol.....

One thing I love about this group is how loving they are to our
boys!  They let them open their gifts, sit by them, etc. and I love 
 that.  Their kindness and acceptance does not go unnoticed!

We are up to our eyeballs in receptions and parties
over here!  The Mister has to attend many and host many
because of his job, so he is crazy busy and gone most 
evenings.  This week we have two more dinners to attend
together and our anniversary is this week.
Next week we have three gatherings to attend...oh,
and there are two auctions and a doctor appointment
in there, too! Whew!

  2. You weren't kidding, when you said it was about to get busy at your place. I would collapse from all that you have on your agenda. Looks like everyone had a great time at the party. I see your red velvet cake, looks so good. Now, about that sculpt your own boyfriend kit....you feel like sharing? Lol!!!

      So, your wedding anniversary is this week, huh? Well, Happy A!

  7. You really know how to throw a party!! What fun to see all the people and the wonderful employees the Mister has and how they respond to the boys. You look adorable. The food sounds great, and I plan to make the cheese ball recipe for Christmas.

    Today was my dearest's 78th birthday so I had a little private party for him, since the kids do the bigger one.

    1. Doesn't it? It isn't always like that, though....sometimes they are just stared at, ignored or treated as if they are contagious....which I'm sure you already know.....
