Hello friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We had a gorgeous weekend even though it was a little on the chilly side. On Saturday it was -17C and the kids and I went out to do some Christmas card photos. We didn’t last longer than five minutes but that’s all I needed. Here is a picture of the back drop I used. I think the snow against the blue sky is so pretty but it sure was cold out there! There was also a pack of seven dear crossing the pond when we first got there but they were too fast for me and I didn’t get them in the shot. Drat.
Friday night was the night of my dinner club Tropical Party. It went really well and the food was all so delicious. Everyone brought a dish or two. The Tropical Guacamole dish I made turned out delicious, thank goodness. Can you believe I’ve never made guacamole before? And then to make one with pineapple in it, well it just sounded a bit strange. Thankfully though when all was said and done, it tasted great!

A fun time was had by all even if I was the only one to rock a Mumu!!
