Holiday Party Fun

Tonight my parenting group got together for a bit of holiday cheer. We elected to have the party at Roxanne's house because she was the only one that would have Christmas decorations up and the rest of us are members of the tribe. Roxanne always has the most lovely things in her home, and she's a natural born decorator who makes and repairs most of the items in her house. She's also the greatest dump diver I've ever met and has furnished half her house from the town dump. She's amazing and totally hilarious.

This is a terrible photo of Roxanne, but Pele, the little elf, was dressed to kill.

The fireplace decorated with icicle lights, artichokes and pine cones, and plenty of plants.

The tree is tall and thin and has such pretty decorations on it.

The dining room with part of the scrumptious meal we had. Don't you just love the lights over the table?


Roxanne's latest dump find, this corner cabinet just moved in a week ago, but it fits perfectly in the room. It holds a nice collection of Santas.


Looking into the kitchen, even the doorway to the "man cave" has a pretty handmade wreath.


Pele checking out the snacks in his little elf costume. That dog has more clothing than I do!


Lisa checking out her gift from the Yankee Swap, which we all failed miserably at, since we all loved what we got! No swapping at all.



Marianne scratching off her scratch tickets. She won a big $3.00. Ronna looking particularly fetching with her eyes closed. I am a terrible photographer, evidentally.


Roxanne looking enthralled by another hilarious story from Ronna. We're a tight group of people, but we're also all pretty funny and we just crack each other up. It's so nice to have such a great group of friends, especially since we all have kids with 'issues' and really get each other's situations. It's really wonderful to have such great support. I love these people.

The house looked great and it sounded like a lot of fun. The dog is cute, too.

Artichokes for decorations? They look great! She's truly a genius. I never would have thought of it.

Daisy, she is the most talented home designer I've ever met. She's just amazing, she has no training at all, it just comes to her. I'm so jealous I could cry!

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
