Polly loved her snowman made by Barbara.
Hart unwraps her choice.
Michelle, Polly and Barbara toast before we dig in.
Donna, Heather and Deb join in the toast.
Hart's house always looks beautiful but especially at the Christmas stitching she outdoes herself. Some of us bring little gifts for eveyone and leave them at each place setting around the table. Donna gave each of us mugs with very appropriate saying on each one! Magazine subscriptions from Hart- Coastal Living here I come. And I gave a sampling of Martha Stewart's Texas Spice Rub.
Michelle and the appetizer table.
A very gorgeous pair- Barbara and Polly.
This is why you smile when the camera is pointed at you. Deb looks great.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night....
