Festive Weekend

We had a fun weekend filled with family, friends, food, festivities and a play. It all started Saturday afternoon with the Lord of the Manor using the leaf blower in the living room (!) because the chimney didn't start drawing fast enough and we had a bit of smoke in the room. Cough cough! (Do these things happen in other folks' homes or is it just us?)

Our guests arrived right on time which was great considering they came all the way from England. We had a delightful time catching up, watching little guyguy push buttons, and sharing a meal together. (I think he's going to be an engineer of some sort; he was fascinated with the washer and dryer.)

They brought the pudding in this FABULOUS little bag from Marks & Spencer. I am just thrilled with the bag. It's soooo cute!

And check out the fairy cakes. Aren't they delightful? (I'm pretty sure they didn't come from Marks & Spencer.)

Then yesterday we went to see a slightly off Broadway production of CATS. There is something so festive about a live production during the holidays. I just love seeing plays anyway, so it was a great way to spend an afternoon. And what a fab job those high school kids did. Fun, fun, fun.

So we had a great weekend here Amongst The Oaks doing what we think is important about the holidays; getting together with family and friends to share laughs and good times.

Oh, I've gotten to hear about fairy cakes for years but have never seen one myself. It certainly is an artistic bit of cuisine, isn't it?

Wishing you great joy for the holidays. You know, I have these wellies I just got and wore them for the first time when I got my Christmas tree. I absolutely thought of you and your blog! Take care.
