on to the holidays

I know I have been out for a while. There were quite a lot of holidays, then catching up on workloads, home decorating for the Christmas, getting my name changed, gaining a god daughter and doing early Christmas shopping to avoid the holiday rush. It’s been chaotic but very much productive.

We have also just finished hosting Friendsgiving & Games 2017. So, this is now a tradition in our home. 

the potluck menu – everyone pitched in!

After lunch, the games are played. We have Taboo, King of Tokyo and Sushi go! It was hours of fun.

After that we shared something we are thankful about, and some more stories -the recent happening in our lives.
Like the last Friendsgiving, we only have a few photos. Well technically we only have one group photo and a solo shot of our good friend Matti.  (sorry, no posting as the photo is a group photo, and the solo photo is a solo photo- we do not have the rights ok?!)
Its officially December! Woot woot! Its on to the holidays for everyone!

And also Grateful

If you are feeling some December blues, or even depression, don’t fight it.
Instead, do something for yourself. Be reflective. Let the emotions exist.
And be encouraged that, like me, you can get to a better place, but it can take time. – Brad Feld

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.
