Let the Parties Begin!

Wow!! It's December 1st and the Christmas parties have begun. To kick off the season my Longaberger group is the first to celebrate with a morning brunch gathering at fellow consultant Cindy Donavon's beautiful home! She is always so gracious to host meetings and parties, she has yet to furnish her living room making it the perfect space for several tables and chairs .... thank you, thank you Cindy for hosting the herd! We began the morning with Debbie leading us in a prayer of thanks and gratitude followed by a pot luck brunch. Yummy french toast, cheesy potato casserole, spinach quiche, fresh fruits, scones, cream puffs and that just the things I can remember! No one left hungry that's for sure.
One of the "kitchen" crew, Cathy Collette taking a much needed break! She settled in next to Cindy's "Whoville" Tree as I nicknamed it! It is very whimsical and reminds me of the town of Whoville in the Grinch movies.
Caught in the act! Our hostess Cindy is texting during our meeting! 
December Longaberger offerings ... the Snowman really is just the cutest fella. Perfect for use in any holiday display, if you love snowmen, he's your guy!!
A few more gals, Susie (our newest adoptee) Marty and Debbie our fearless leader! Yes, my McDonald's iced coffee is in the pic too! Love that stuff!! 
 Speaking of McDonald's this year we played a Chinese gift exchange using gift cards in lieu of gifts. It was so fun, I highly recommend it. Everyone was stealing, laughing and in general having a great time and YES I stole the McDonald's gift card!! It will buy me coffee for a week, woohoo!!
We each received this beautiful gift from Debbie ... filled with her "favorite" things. We had our own Oprah!

A 2012 Christmas group picture! Look at our little Santa on the end, that is Naomi, isn't she so cute!
Farewell and thanks for stopping by to visit!
