Christmas Party

We held our 9th annual christmas party and ornament exchange this year. We invited all of our friends and had a great time eating, drinking and being merry. I made artichoke dip, tuxedo brownie bites, and cream cheese with jalapeno jelly. We also provided beer, wine and champagne cocktails—sparkling stars and crimson sippers. Our friends each brought something to share as well, so there was plenty of delicious food and drinks and lots of good conversation.

The ornament exchange was a lot of fun again this year! Some highlights were a blues playing snowman, a handmade Grinch on a gourd, and Pete’s homemade reindeer. There was some stealing going on and the reappearance of the Tiger ornament. Everyone left with something new to hang on their tree and a chocolate dipped pretzel. Merry Christmas from the Himmelbergers!
