We pulled it off!

My first party that is. Andrew and I worked all day to finish the floor and get our house back to a presentable state. We managed to get it all done and even had a few minutes to spare. The house looks good or at least I think so. I love my hardwood floor. Actually I love my whole house when it is clean. Unfortunately I hate cleaning it. :)

Anyways. I ended up having eight people, which I was thrilled with. I know that I had a great time visiting with everyone and I hope they had a good time too. It is so nice to visit with teachers outside of school. I'm so glad they came. That really means a lot to me. I love getting to know them on a more personal level. I work with a lot of good Christian ladies.

I meant to take pictures of my yummy snacks, but completely forgot. Jill came a little early and made us some homemade hot chocolate. It was so yummy!!! Thank you Jill for the hot chocolate & other things you brought. You are a wonderful sister.

We had sugar cookies that my mom used to make all the time. They were so good. I haven't had those cookies in forever. I got burned out on them because we used to make them all the stinkin' time for me to take to school. My friends & teachers loved them.

I also made PB & Ritz crackers covered with white chocolate. Very rich, but very yummy.

Our non-sweets included mexican pinwheels, a cheese & cracker tray, and a veggie tray.

I must tell you though, that not everyone enjoyed the bookparty. Liberty & Liam were stuck in the bedroom all night. They sat @ the door & cried the entire time. We kept seeing little noses under the door. So sweet. :)

Okay - that's the story of the book party. If anyone wants to order some books still, you can do that online @ until the 20th.

I'm off to bed to get rested for church in the morning.


  1. Great party! Your teacher friends were really nice...enjoyed meeting all of them.

    The hot cocoa recipe is definitely a keeper! Going to post that recipe soon.

    As for the food...I could have eaten the entire tray of celery and ranch dip as well as the cheese & crackers!! Great job on the snacks...loved it all!

    Love you!

  2. It feels a little weird leaving a comment seeing that this is the first one I've left, but it shouldn't be that weird cause we are family afterall! Glad to here your party was a success - I ordered a couple of books around Mon./Tues.-and they were already on our doorstep Friday afternoon. I LOVE them - can't wait for God to bring Abigail to us so that I can read them to her! Thanks for sharing about your book party.
