The Party

December 20th, 2009

Today was the Big Day. We hosted an open house for the church this afternoon. We got about 30 people and had way too much food. It’s always tough to guess how much people will eat at 2:30 on Sunday afternoon, particularly when much of what you’re serving has enough sugar to send a horse into a diabetic coma. In any case, the menu consisted of:

Veggie Tray
Cocktail Meatballs
Zesty Bean Roll-Ups
Tuna Nicoise in Phyllo Cups
Kate’s Peanut Butter Bites of Happy Joy
Decorated Sugar Cookies
York Peppermint Patty Brownies
No-Bake Cookies
Triple Ginger Cookies
Lockard Fudge

Kinda makes your waist expand just thinking about it, doesn’t it?

Although the food was delicious, the hit of the party was really Miss Mouse’s outfit. Never mind taffeta, bows and froth. THIS is a Christmas dress.

And those magnificent tights? They’re actually leg-warmers. We spent lots of time admiring her cute little butt and chubby thighs. Love love love it.
