Tonight was my church book group's Christmas party. WHAT A BLAST! It was at a member of our group's house (Beth H.) and she was a wonderful hostess. Including me, there were 14 women there, and that means a ton of laughter and a ton of fun. People brought a lot of delicious food and we all enjoyed the special treats.
Beth had her house all decorated. This was on her dining room table....the mood throughout the house was festive and warm. Perfect for a party!
Here is a picture of most of the group. One person wasn't there yet, I'm taking the picture and Beth J. is hiding from the camera. I was nice and didn't post the picture I secretly took of her. :)
We played the dice game and fought over presents. I was lucky enough that I got the present I wanted right away and no one tried to steal mine. :) This picture is Beth J., Beth H. and Leslie participating in the battle for the movie. Carol ended up winning it, but the scramble betweeen these three was hilarious. The whole game had us laughing, especially when people got to steal the gift they really wanted or someone stole that extra special gift. I really haven't laughed that hard in a long time.
The night finally started to wind down at about 9:30p. We were all shocked to see the time. Beth H. was a wonderful hostess and sent us all home with a Poinsettia.
What a great and wonderful way to start out December and the holiday season!
