Let me tell you about our friend Melanie.
Melanie is fabulous. She gardens, makes homemade salsa and jams, she's thrifty, and creative. I strive to be like her when I grow up.
She's also a former teacher. So, THIS is exactly how you might find Melanie at any moment.
And this here is Matt.
Oh, HOW do I ever describe Matt?
Matt will say ANYTHING. Usually when it's the LEAST appropriate time, and he's by far, one of the funniest people I have ever met. And he's also a fabulous friend.
And those two fabulous people, host a fabulous Christmas party every year.
We've been going to that party for years, but sadly had to miss last year, the first one we've missed in 9 years.
BUT THIS YEAR?
This was the year of the comeback.
We were back with our people.
And Melanie doesn't just throw some half-slop party thing together
Everything is decked out.
And the food?
Oh the food is wonderful.
With something yummy
Everywhere you turn.
But other than admiring Melanie and all her work
We are all together to have fun.
As you can imagine there are MANY a picture taken
My greasy head says hello!
Seriously I think 150 pictures were taken
I just can't help myself.
But you must know, that somewhere throughout the night, things start to go awry.
We go from lovely poses, to things you're just not sure about.
Or you might even run into a one-man-show
Reenacting his wife
Throwing their newborn baby.
And there is always a point in the evening when I lose my camera
And beautiful pictures are taken.
I can't take blame for some of these
THEN there is Steve.
You just have to know him.
And that's the thing
I can't explain all these people and what they mean to me.
I'm just so happy to know them all.
