Over the weekend we flew down to LA to visit Lauren and Stu and attend their 4th Annual Christmas Party. This year the theme was English Supper and we made massive amounts of roasted root veggies, mashed potatoes, and beef. It was so much fun catching up with friends from ADPi I haven’t seen in years. As a bonus I got to see Joey, Brittany, Becky and Arek, too! Nearly fifty people showed up this year – the Smithski’s really know how to throw a party. In a new twist this year, they asked everyone to bring canned goods – they filled four or five boxes for a local organization.
We spent the rest of the weekend lazing about visiting.
I forgot all about taking pictures and only got one the entire weekend – of Greg squeezing lemon juice into a punch bowl.
Wednesday night we had an early Christmas dinner with Roberta since I will be in Denver for the holiday. She was very generous and had fun buying for a girl for the first time. Among other things, she gave me the soft hat and bathrobe I am modeling below.
Next up is the Martin family Christmas party followed by a trip to Denver. In 2012 I think we’re going to work on our overscheduling during the holidays!
