Celebrating with the Moms

Last night we had our annual Holiday get together with the Moms at our friend's newly painted house (at least the inside). We have been meeting regularly for almost 31 years spreading our blankets on the ground and placing the babies on their bellies with their wobbly heads in the center. Well the babies have scattered to the winds, some with their own babies but we remain very much interested in their lives. Between the 5 of us, we have 10 children and 6 grandchildren.

The setting: a beautifully decorated house
The cast: my best friends
The menu:
Shrimp cocktail
Brie en croute (easy recipe: wrap crescent roll sheets around brie and bake. For extra fun, add fig jam before covering with the rolls)
Wine: Red for 3 of us
White for two
Crab cakes with remoulade sauce
Sesame-broccoli mix
Cranberry, apple, orange jello concoction
Homemade cookies
The Buche
Wonderful company and conversation

Lots of interesting gifts including a stained glass mosaic, various pretty and good smelling lotions, wine, Turkish delight, gift card, picture frames, wine glass trinkets, calendars, non-pareils, Coach purselets, candles, ornaments

The roads are still too icy to run on so back to the Y running around in circles.
