Christmastime....and Thanksgiving shots, too

Somehow the pictures that Grammy takes, are usually of the little ones. Go Figure ! I do, occasionally get an adult in there, for a change. Here are a few from the gathering for the Thanksgiving feast, and the rest are Christmastime...

Holiday festivities....

Friday and Saturday were nights of great food, and fun. Will Green, Jim's brother, came in from Iowa, and we haven't seen him for years, so he wanted to get together. We truly enjoyed the great meal, and atmosphere of "Portabella" restaurant in Clayton.... The food was outstanding, and we had time to catch up on news and do some sharing. We had fun seeing Will, and finding out what he's been up to. Cindy and Jerry talked about some of their recent travels, and Judi and Paul shared a bit about all their Christmas plans with family. ---- if you go there, try the rainbow trout with pistachios, and the sauted spinach---- out of this world- everyone loved their meal !

Paul fits right in...

Judi and Paul are in St. Louis for their family gathering at Trent's house, so we all got together at our favorite restaurant, Kirkwood's Amicis--- the greatest Italian food around !! We usually try their "specials" or the tuttomare or penne vodka, and love the salad.... their pizza is great, too... We take all our friends there, and have never been disappointed..... They do an amazing business, even in this time of uncertainty in the market, etc.. I guess folks still like to go out for a great meal !!
We laughed and joked, and had a great time... We even got 4 desserts, and passed them around the table for everyone to try !!! togetherness !! ha !

2nd Annual Christmas Party--

What fun... Loads of great stuff to nibble on, Lots of funny stories to tell, Lots of things to reminisce about, and then the most fun-- The CRAZY FUN bunko game (each person provided at least 4-6 crazy, regifted, Goodwill, or White Elephant gifts to share... Some of them were acquired at the party last year !) tee hee...
After the "taking of the gifts" from one another, We circle the room with the unwrapping, one at a time...(we love to drag it out !) The Ziggy theme was Jennifer's, and we all loved our Ziggy stuff ! They get funnier every year ! Thanks, for coming and sharing your joy and laughter with me ! I had a great time, too !
