made it

Happy to have successfully hosted a Friendsgiving! -Main goal being to introduce our good friends to our other good friends. And bonding with our friends that are “family” to us before everybody gets too busy with the holiday season.

I am happy to note that everybody “mixed” well! 

But due to my being busy having too much fun, I only have two measly photos. (sorry, no posting as both photos are group photos) It was a whole day of feast and games.

With a bit of twist into the traditional thanksgiving menu we came up with this. 

kkklkmnnmnm,

As you can see this was a group thing. -On the bottom is our house logo. Yes, it is really meant to echo Pancake House! as our “loveteam name” sounds like pancake. 

That was our spread. We also played quite a lot of monopoly deal.

Right after lunch we played monopoly deal all the way till 7. Only stopping to have snacks, wine and coffee. There were a lot of laughs, stories and friendly banter.

We also had a new game to add to our game collection, care of our friend Stephen.

While we never played it yet, this will be a good game to play on the next “game day” at home.

Thankful to have a “wonderful family of friends” to be with us in our lives. We sure are blessed.

no stopping christmas

The tree is up!

We managed to assemble and decorate the tree, it turned out nicely!

here is Pepper photobombing our tree

The feathered birds looked right at home in the tree!

I might add some ribbons but it is looking good. At night it looks “glowy” like the rice lights had extra brilliance. See?

We also hung the ornament chandelier we got. -kind of missing a few more ornaments here and there because we have run out of ornaments. But it can hold on its own, maybe next year we add more. For now it would look like that, plus a few more ribbons. -For that I have to run to the neighborhood bookstore to get some ribbons.

The dining table also got a Christmas touch.

Yes we have bunnies on the table.

That’s about it for the Christmas decorations. Finishing up in time for our Friendsgiving this weekend!

Christmas is right around the corner! I am so excited for the holidays!
