A Thurston Hosted Dinner and the Annual Bailey Christmas Party



The Thurston's hosted our December 13th dinner
and Dwight was the master chef for the evening.
He created quite the exotic meal!

We had Vietnamese soup, spring rolls, pork and seeds, and some other wraps that I can't remember what they were called....but trust me they were yummy.

There they are on the counter where Amy is working away assisting her man in anyway she can.


Tom and Katie were amongst the guests.


Amy worked hard to make the tables look festive.


Here she is giving out the seat assignments.



Morgan digs into one of those wraps I was telling you about.


The following are some of the attendees:

Miss Wini


And Wolfie


Along with parents, Morgan and Sara


Here's Teddy looking wide eyed.


Good buddy cousins, Ella and Hazel


This handsome guy is Thomas


And this cutie is Atticus


Sorry to those who didn't get their picture in this post, but I couldn't figure out how to turn the pictures the right way and so those that only had a sideways picture taken got left out. Please don't be offended, just vow to come and teach this old lady how to blog properly.



On December 20th, the Strasser's hosted our annual Bailey Christmas Party and White Elephant exchange. Again I had a problem with many of my pictures being turned sideways, so some guests may not be pictured....please be patient with me.

Calvin was amongst some of the guests that night.


Casey and Holly contributed not only to the fun, but brought some extremely yummy appetizers too. And I must tell Holly in this blog that her tin of goodies she sent home with us were deelish!


Tom and Katie joined us too and that might be why the guys won that Trivia game.


Here are some of the guests getting in some visiting while eating some of Sara's fantastic soup. Who needs the Olive Garden when you've got Sara!
That's Bailey with his back to us, then David, Sara, Amy, and Dwight (looking very much in the spirit of the season with his Santa hat)


Wolfie had a fun time running around dumping out people's drinks. But he was too cute to get anyone too worked up over it.


Madison, Theresa, Holly, and Tessa


Here's Ella trying to convince Katie to take her dad's earlier choice (Lady's Anti-Monkey Butt Powder) instead of that gift she's about to unwrap.


And the hit of the night....David modeling his fancy ladies panties. I'm sure it was done during an unprecedented lapse of judgment on his part.


A better look at the prized underwear. Note the "full figured" tag. Perfect for my handsome brother's physique.


We ended the evening with a game of Trivia, where the guys somehow managed to triumph over us women.


A shout of thanks out to the Thurston's and the Strasser's for hosting these two events.
We hope all of you are having similar fun times and enjoying this holiday season.
Merry Christmas to you all!

Haq Meher Ep 03 – ARY Digital Dramah2
‘Haq Meher’ comes under the umbrella of the same perception. It is the story of an ideal couple madly in love with each other. But the dilemma in their story occurs when both families set their terms and conditions according to their beliefs about ‘Haq Meher’. Which creates conflicts keeping the newly married couple apart. But the love birds continue to try and convince their families and strive to be reunited as one.
