And is finally going to allow more pictures, so here is brother, Jeff. Quite the handsome devil, don't you think? I didn't get his wife, Veronica (except for the eating photo below. If you really squint your eyes you can see her waaaaaay in the background with the long hair).
And here is me and sister, Delynn. Sorry, Tammy, I had to crop you out. Trust me, you would not have wanted that picture seen by anyone. LOL. I really love this picture of me and Lynnie.
I didn't get a picture of all the food. I was too busy at the beverage counter making the slushes. This is the food area just when we were beginning to set it out. I used my woodland Father Christmas as the centerpiece. The two levels of counter worked splendidly. My mom gave me that linen skirting a few years ago and this is the first time I've used it.
Can you see the gardening tool Santa brought me? Look way in the back against the wall. It's a new short-handled shovel.
The jolly old guy was very good to me and seemed to know just the sort of things I love.
Not one, but TWO new sets of charger plates. One is black metal and the other marbled gold glass. I can't wait to set some new tables. I already have my next theme in mind--black/gold jungle theme. Today I will open that garnishing booklet to see what cute ideas are in it. And look at those Wilton checkerboard cake pans...will that be fun or what!
Let the Basting Begin! - I am using my dining room table to baste this big one -- it's about 105 x 105 inches (king size). It's been a while since I've finished one this big.
