As usual, I often forget to get my camera out. There next five photos are after John's graduation back at our house for the party.
Last night was our 22nd Annual Christmas party. Again I forgot the camera until my cousin John was sitting by our grandson Travis. By the time I took the photos, we had only about 30 people here. We had about 75 in all.
Tonight is our December Birthday Party. This year we are going to the Golden Moon in Weatherford because Aventino's in Fort Worth won't reopen until January 10! :>( Golden Moon is good, but Aventino's is special!
Now all I have to do between now and Christmas is finish two gifts, bake 25 gingerbread loaves, and bake the pies for Christmas day...oh, and clean the carpet because the city thoughtfully oiled our street in preparation for paving it today, and we have oil all over the carpet!!!!!!!!!!!!! (and at 4:57 pm it seems they are stopping the paving...so the oil is still there!!!)
However, the party was wonderful. So many friends. It was worth it!
Got the nicest surprises for my birthday. Raf got me a beautiful pin and scarf from Granville Island in Vancouver, and Bonny called me from Victoria!! Thanks, Bonny and Rob! And next week I will photograph the pin and scarf.
