My posts are going to be out of order because I have started a blog for my class and so I am uploading photos to computers all over the place and it seems that some of my home pics have ended up on my classroom computer. I will have to do something about that.
Last Sunday was our monthly supper group's Christmas dinner. We had a blast! We were hosting and Dh did a standing rib roast on the barbecue. The smell is unbelieveable and all the neighbours have to come and comment on the aroma. J brought the appetizers - cheese sticks and stuffed mushrooms. I have never had the mushrooms before and am not generally a fan of mushrooms in general but these were divine. That's a recipe I must get. The M brought a black-bottomed cheesecake and sticky buns that were amazing and the other J brought a great salad and bread. There were lots of jokes about needing Weight Watchers by the time we were done.
Pk and LB only have two cousins and I don't expect that to change. Having this group of friends is really nice because it feels a bit like a big family Christmas and the get togethers we had with the rest of our family when I was growing up. Pk and Lb love the other kids and they had so much fun. For the kids, one of the highlights was teaching Lb to jump on the bed in his room. None of the parents were quite as excited about this.
