Parties and Pretties

 I'm all ready for the festivities.

Now I'm just tweaking things a little here and there.

This is a picture of my first Christmas.  A LONG time ago.
New table and new lantern equals new look.
Bird and music stars from PBarn.
 My friend, Kathy, made this yummy chocolate and peppermint cake for our Bible Study gift exchange.
There was some stealing going on.

 This is the cake lady.
 Tonya is our miracle.  Can I say REMISSION!
The girls pile into my living room.
Three of us are missing, but we have an awesome group! 
Whew, getting ready for another party tonight.

I'm participating in the Christmas Tour of Homes at The Nesting Place and Hooked on Houses. Check out the amazing homes participating!  My other Christmas links are our tree, the "not gingerbread house" and our apartment
