Food, Fellowship, Fun. . .

Last night I attended a wonderful event at Bobby & Kari's church, The Church at Battle Creek, in Broken Arrow. This was a ladies only night out. We munched on some fabulous goodies before the program began.


The theme for this year's program was 'Home For Christmas'. We each received this book filled with delicious recipes & helpful suggestions for making the holiday season joyful & stress free.




I had such a great time talking & laughing with Kim, Kari's sister, Kari, & Carol, Kari's Mom. Her mom & I have the same name, Carol Ann!



The program began at 7:00 in the sanctuary. Here you see the program agenda & the corresponding pages for info. PJ's on Parade was a pajama fashion show featuring the cutest kids. Next the pastor's wife showed 3 different ideas for decorating your front door. A doctor then talked about how to stay healthy with your eating & stress management during the holidays. The next presenters were so entertaining while they showed stocking stuffer ideas. Finally we were treated to a few recipe ideas for Christmas morning.


Everyone received some great gifts. A coupon for 20% off PJ's at the children's shop that furnished items for the fashion show, warm & cozy socks, the December issue of Better Homes & Gardens magazine, and . . .




my favorite item, a beaded Pyrex casserole holder! I love it!



Yesterday I monogrammed Ethan's stocking. I had to take off the white furry cuff to do the monogram & then reattach. I also took off the loop & added a blue ribbon loop.



I'm very proud of the way it turned out. Now I need to monogram the big people stockings. I bought the four of us new stockings year before last ,but never got around to personalizing. I won't be tackling that project today because Bobby & Kari are going shopping with me. I'm hoping to get some things checked off my gift list.
