One Sunday in December, we hosted TWO parties in one day!
The first party was my annual Christmas luncheon with my Altar Society ladies. I've been a part of the St. Teresa circle for about 10 years now (maybe more??) and I love it!! There is so much piety, knowledge, and humor in these ladies. I've learned a lot over the years, about raising large families and life on a farm and all the history behind the major parish families (some might call it "gossip" but I prefer "history"). This day, inspired by the recent wind storm, they told stories about the 1962 Columbus Day storm. Amazing! They had first-hand accounts of trying to find safety for their families in the middle of tornado-type winds, and living without electricity for almost 2 weeks. SO glad our storm this year was tiny!!

Our next party was a small gathering of 17 which just means that it was our normal family dinner (minus Uncle Brian, who was sick). We were supposed to go to Uncle Brian/Auntie Coley's house for Nicole's birthday celebration, but with the host sick in bed we had to make other plans. Marcus and I had everyone over here to our home and had a great party. :o)
