Monday Mania ~ Our Dinner Group & Where the Weekend Went

It was our last weekend to enjoy the lights of our Christmas Tree.
We had kept it up, as Amy and Seth were here...
Emily and Jake were here...
Our holidays extended well into January.
Taking the tree down makes it seem so final...
no more holiday...no more celebrating...
Get Back to Work!
So...
I had used my sewing maching to mend a little something for a friend...
a teensy, weensy little favor...
And...she brought me fresh flowers...absolutely not necessary...
but then, who doesn't just love fresh flowers?
Our dinner group met at our home tonight,
We were celebrating two birthdays.

Hubby made the salad.
I made lasagna.
The birthday girls arrived.

Jeanne helped with dinner preparations...

Here's hubby with his best friend, Alan...

Dinner was served.

Paul...the Piano Man...
led us in singing Happy Birthday!

Yummy cake...

Birthday presents...

Friendship...

There is no better time than that spent with family and friends.

Take care,
~Natalie

Looks like a lovely time was had by all. The cake looked scrumptious!!

After we take the tree and Christmas decorations down I think the house looks so bare don't you?

I want to know about the cake!! Did you make baked Alaska??? Hope you are keeping warm, I watched the weather and thought of you. We are on the edge of the snow, but will get the winds and cold.
