Hi all... Karen and I had a "record" 12 people and one dog (Bailey) over for an early Christmas Eve hourdouerve and cocktail party. The entire Yee family was here, including the family dog and David, Michelle's boyfriend.
Also had two good friends over. Rob and Bill Stiener (who brought wife Sandy and two kids.)
Table treats included meatballs in the Crock Pot with Mom's favorite Yosheeta sauce, Costco shrimp boiled in Old Bay seasoning and vinegar, a vegetable platter with Marzetti's dip, and a fresh cheese platter (flown in from Italy according to Costco) with pepperoni.
Everyone came at 5 p.m., and the last to leave around 12 midnight. Karen and I off to 9 a.m. Mass this morning, home for a quick gift exchange and then over to my friend Rob's for a social call until about 3:30 p.m. and then off to work. Karen will then go to her family's house.
Merry Christmas to all, and to all, a good morning!
