This evening, I had a chance to wear my gold sparkle shoes.
they are so fun:
It was our formal Christmas party for our school's Staff and board members.
The party was held at the same place that we've had it for the last few years. Each year, my friend Layne, who is a vegetarian, receives and amazing entree and I'm always jealous of her meal. This year, when I submitted by RSVP I asked if I could become vegetarian for the evening and I was informed that I could and that they just needed to know how many to order. So....I did...
Wow! Did I ever make a good choice! It was a Phyllo wrapped parcel of roasted vegetables (mushrooms, asparagus, beets, and more) and it was so delicious!
It was a great evening of visiting...fun white elephant gift giving...great food and another reminder that I am so blessed and lucky to work at such an amazing school.
While we were partying, Kezia was hosting her youth's small group here at our house. We set up this hot chocolate bar and also served mint chocolate cookies and chocolate dipped pretzels.
I have to say it was pretty nice that after a few years of scrambling for rides to and from youth on the night of the staff Christmas party that it was very handy to have Kiandra able to drive Kaden to the church and herself to her small group night. She also picked up Kaden and drove him home. As much as I still panic with her on the road, having a third driver in the house is a bit of a luxury.
