This year, we held our Christmas Dinner at Bel Piatto Cucine Italiano.
Barbara and Pat festively decorated the banquet room with santas and poinsettias, and 27 were in attendance. The restaurant provided an incredible buffet of 3 different pasta dishes, salad, the best bread on the planet, and the best waitress on the planet. WE LOVE YOU, KANEESHA! Thank you!
Everyone brought 2 dozen cookies for a cookie exchange! The idea was - you bring two, and take home two :D It was a huge hit, and Pat made ADORABLE cupcake snowmen that everybody wanted to take home, but we ended up eating them all, instead...
The gift exchange was less congenial... for some reason, this "game" really brings out people's competitive nature! People were stealing gifts all over the place and one exchange even came to blows! Just kidding- we took a group nap. Just kidding, it was fun... but that's not as exciting as saying an all out brawl took place... so we're going with "The gift exchange was insane and ended in total mayhem"... and calling it a night.
Thank you to everyone for a WONDERFUL 2014... here's to an even better (if it's possible), 2015! We hope to see you all back for more excitement. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
