The 3rd annual Sisterhood Christmas party

The Sisterhood party is always so much fun. Today's theme was 'get comfortable in pjs and sweatshirts'.


The tables were all set.

The young nieces were ready to go. 


Our hostesses Janie and Grace started uncovering all the food. There were meat and cheese trays, veggie trays, stuffed mushrooms (thank you Mandy), chicken spaghetti casserole (thank you Marla), sausage pinwheels (thank you Leah), warm blackberry pie (thank you Darlene), little smokies (thank you Karen), chocolate peanut butter bars (thank you Lori), a few pitchers of screwdrivers, and I brought a marinated cheese tray and raspberry lettuce salad.


Lot of conversations were going on at a time.


Lizzie awaits her screw driver. No wait, she had plain orange juice!


Lizzie and I played bingo.


While bingo was going on upstairs . . .


 . . . the guys were playing cards in the basement.

Everyone was letting Lizzie try on their hats.



We played a games of charades. One team would do the charade and the other team had to sing a song.

It was a great day of being a kid again, with adult food and drinks.  Thank you to all my sister-in-laws and family for bringing out the kid in all of us!

It looks like a fun time was had by all. It reminded me of our Christmas Eve family get together. My mouth fell open when you mentioned that people came in their jammies. I had thought to do the same thing when I was making the party plans! I did not take action on that plan though, so we will all be uncomfortable in our street clothes :).

I love your family parties! No one in our family has a place big enough for everyone to get together at once...something I would love to do. And the pj's and sweats is the best idea ever!

Christmas blessings to you..........
