My break is almost over?! :(




175 pictures. 175 pictures and I think I pissed everyone off because we were playing charades and one of the clues was me. So this is how they acted it out - as someone going around and snapping pictures of everything. And everyone knew what the answer was.

Oh well. Such is the life of a scrapbooker.

But anyhow, last night was a blast. Cheesecakes and pie came out good, placecards were a hit, and decorations were done, even though it came out nothing like I wanted it to due to lack of time.



Everyone thought they were cute anyways, so that was good.

Food was awesome and I ate until I couldn't breathe anymore. Cranberry salad, butternut squash soup (with apples!), turkey, ham, stuffing (my favorite, although I still miss my aunt's), mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, cornbread, biscuits, cranberry sauce....






The best thing of all, though, was spending time with these buddies. Some of these people have just become acquaintances that I see only at these sorts of gatherings once or twice a year, but that's okay. I love 'em just the same. And then there are those people I don't see that often but wish I saw them more...and I love being able to be with them. Yep.



Everyone at the table...


Linda Kim, who was my friend in like first grade...she used to be my neighbor! And then she switched schools and we were reunited in high school. I don't see her much anymore, though.


Christian the pimp. Long story. But I wish I saw him more often because he brings in lots of good times.


Nora, Julie and Linda Kwong. Nora and Julie I see sort of often, but Linda goes to school in Berkeley and that's a bit far. Nora always does these ditzy things that never fail to crack us up, and Julie is so silly. Linda is a bit of a dork and that always cracks us up. Oh, in this picture, we're imitating Nora, whose Myspace picture looks sort of like this pose. She says it's because she put her camera on self-timer and she had to pose like that. Yeaaaaaah....


Louis, my ex from like freshman year of high school. Glad we've stayed on great terms. I wish I saw him more often, though, because he's such a cool guy. But he's busy and so we catch up during times like these.


Elaine, who is like the coolest chick EVER.



p.s. I think I'm still used to my old computer. My old computer wouldn't let Blogger Images work, so I used Photobucket....and when I was typing this up I went over to Photobucket...then I thought "wait a sec." whoops.

Wow--what a full house! It's nice, though, to see friends celebrating the holiday together.

I'd love to have the butternut squash soup recipe--I had it for the first time this week and it was YUM!!! (Don't think the restaurant would probably share the holiday, though!)

Great photos--hope mine come out the same.

xoxo,
Becca

Look at all those beautiful faces. My two favorite photos are of everyone looking down the table at you and of the table with the candles. Sounds like a great time was had by all.
